Eugene Opera’s primary mission is to present exciting opera! We bring a mix of works to the stage in Eugene, from classic to modern, comic to tragic. Oregon ArtsWatch asks "What are we to make of plucky Eugene Opera?" and Eugene Weekly says “Eugene Opera is helping make opera relevant to 21st-century Oregon.”
Our 2014-15 season includes Gaetano Donizetti's melodic romantic comedy The Elixir of Love, on December 31, 2014 and January 4, 2015, and Stephen Sondheim's modern musical masterpiece Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, on March 13 & 15, 2015.
Eugene Opera also strives to increase the audience for opera, to identify and engage emerging artists, to contribute to the future of the art form, and to develop educational programs for the community-at-large, schools and young artists.
