Opera America


You are cordially invited to a

Community Celebration

Recognizing MN Opera and 50 Years of Opera in America.

MN Opera was among the first companies in 1970 to join OPERA America, the national champion for opera artists, administrators, trustees and audiences. Fifty years later, for its anniversary in 2020, OPERA America is partnering with its sixteen founding member companies to celebrate a half century of opera’s progress in America. We hope you can join us for this special afternoon honoring the opera industry and the legacy of opera in Minnesota.
