About the Opera Chorus
The role of the chorus in any opera production is one of the utmost importance. These singers take part in many scenes, interacting with the principal characters and setting the tone for the entire cast. Many of opera’s most beloved titles feature large ensemble sections, such as the “Anvil Chorus” in Il trovatore or the Brindisi in La traviata. In addition to their vocal forces, the chorus also serves an important role in creating action on stage. For example, Pensacola Opera Chorus members recently created a stunning river effect in our 2019 production of Florencia in the Amazon, even when they weren’t singing!
In addition to their work on our mainstage productions, the Pensacola Opera Chorus also participates in a bustling series of community engagement and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. They regularly serve as holiday carolers in December, as well as appearing alongside the Artists in Residence at “Pours & Encores” events in bars and breweries around town.
Our Opera Chorus is made up of a wide variety of people, who come to us from all around the area. These are people who love to sing and are great team players. While we do add new members to our ranks every year, we also have a few dedicated Opera Chorus members who have performed in over fifty productions!
