The mission of Fort Worth Opera is to enrich people's lives with performances and programs that educate, entertain, inspire, and expand the horizons of current and future audiences.
Fort Worth Opera is committed to maintaining the highest possible standards of equality; to embracing diversity, giving voice to qualified people of all genders, races, and orientations, on and off the stage; and to transmitting to people of all ages the highest possible standards of fundamental human decency and a civil society.
Fort Worth Opera is committed to producing opera of the highest possible artistic quality and integrity; to identifying and training talented young American singers; to serving as a crucible for creating new American operas; to joining forces with other arts organizations in significant collaborations; and to stimulating curiosity and creativity in people of all ages through its Education Program.
Our vision is to bring the communities of Fort Worth and North Texas closer together through inclusive musical experience, to cultivate young singers into the next generation of opera stars, and to be a world-renowned venue for new and innovative operatic works. We seek to bring the world of opera to Fort Worth and represent Fort Worth to the opera world.
