Mission

 

Our Mission is to produce high quality opera and musicals at affordable prices, to provide training opportunities and experience for Young Artists, Apprentice Singers, and Interns, to provide educational nourishment for all sectors of the community, and to enrich the cultural vitality and quality of life in Virginia.

For 40 years, Charlottesville Opera has produced opera and other musical performances first at Ash Lawn-Highland, and now at the beautifully renovated Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. Charlottesville Opera also provides a wide range of educational programs for youth and adults; professional training for emerging artists and interns; and seeks to enrich the cultural vitality and quality of life in Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region.
