bringing opera to you

We are proud to present a wide variety of free, public performances and educational programs throughout the region. Our goals are to raise awareness of the arts, to enhance the quality of life, and to educate audience members about the magical art form that is opera.


You bring the lunch.
We bring the opera.

Join us each month during our season for a lunch break performance by our Jan Miller Studio Artists. Bring a lunch and enjoy it while you listen to favorite arias, duets, and popular songs.

Discover intersections between music and the visual arts.

Take a look at opera in new ways with our recurring series of Gallery Talks with the Pensacola Museum of Art. These hour-long presentations—typically held in anticipation of our mainstage productions—introduce audience members to the visual and performing arts in new ways, featuring speakers from the opera in collaboration with art curators. Find future Gallery Talk events on our event calendar.
