Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

MN Opera’s vision and mission is to sing every story and to change lives by bringing together artists, audiences, and community, advancing the art of opera for today and future generations. We aim to empower all voices, strengthen bonds between people of all backgrounds and identities, and create spaces of healing, refuge and hope that inspire a sense of authentic belonging in everyone who enters. To this end, all of us at MN Opera are committing ourselves to the continuous work of becoming an antiracist and anti-oppressive organization and incorporating the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion into all that we do. We invite you to learn more about our EDI initiatives and come along with us on our journey to create a new and inclusive future for opera.
