At Home with MN Opera 

Music has served as a shining beacon of healing, refuge, and hope. Minnesota Opera will be here with regular updates to keep you connected and help pass the time.

The Score

Check out MN Opera’s new podcast The Score, a conversation about opera and classical music seen through an anti-racist and anti-oppressive lens. Each episode will amplify the voices of those in the field who are pushing the boundaries of what opera is, who it is for, and how it can transform us and our communities.
