Created in 1986 by a team of visionaries, LA Opera has become a leader in artistic innovation, while honoring the great historical legacy of opera.
Through the powerful art form of opera, we celebrate the diversity and pioneering spirit of our great city.
Opera connects us, through story and music, to our past, our future and each other. LA Opera believes each of us needs and deserves this powerful pathway for connection. We are eager to share the wonder and promise of opera with all ages, neighborhoods and communities, because we know our connections enrich all our lives.
LA Opera Connects invites you to explore the many programs and partnerships through which we engage with students, families and communities. We can’t wait to connect.
When it comes to access to opera, we’ve got you covered.
With the combined efforts of community partners and LA Opera, you have access to opera at the Dorothy Chandler and throughout Los Angeles County, with events and classes tailored to each individual community. Programs and performances take place at a variety of spaces including libraries, museums, hospitals, community centers, senior centers and outdoor venues.
