Opera America's 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Marc a. Sorca, President and CEO of Opera America announces that in conjunction with OPERA America's 50th anniversary in 2020, they are embarking on a yearlong celebration of 50 years of opera in America.

Opera America will commemorate opera’s progress over the past half-century with a variety of initiatives, including an Opera Hall of Fame, an Oral History Project and public programs across the country.

Artists will talk about their visions for the future of the art form and a yearlong social media campaign — #meetopera — will showcase the breadth of opera, the diversity of the people who make and enjoy it, and the many ways it can be experienced, with an aim of inviting potential operagoers to see the art form as vibrant and progressive.
