Fort Worth Opera is the oldest opera company in Texas, and one of the oldest opera companies in the United States. The organization has received national attention from critics and audiences alike for its artistic excellence, pioneering spirit, and steadfast willingness to take risks.
Celebrating its 75th year of operation in 2021, the company has not only performed hundreds of operas in Fort Worth featuring some of opera’s greatest stars; it is also known throughout the operatic world as a champion of new and rarely performed works. Fort Worth Opera has taken a leadership role in engaging audiences beyond the operatic stage, while producing cutting-edge, contemporary works.
With an annual budget of just over $3 million, Fort Worth Opera also boasts a highly successful opera education program, consisting of The Lesley Resident Artist program and the Children’s Opera Theatre, which brings opera to nearly 40,000 school children each year across the state of Texas. The company’s outreach efforts bring an operatic experience to people of every age, ethnic, and social group. Noches de Ópera (Nights of Opera) and A Night of Black Excellence are groundbreaking initiatives introducing powerful programming that reflects the unique and diverse cultures of our Fort Worth community.
