Students from Hillhurst School creating Doppel during Let's Create an Opera

Building generations of opera lovers.

Education programs are an essential part of what we do, enriching the experiences of our current patrons and building audiences for tomorrow through student and young people outreach. This includes great programs like Let’s Create an Opera that gives students the opportunity to create their own original opera, the Opera in Schools Tour that brings one-act operas into schools performed by Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artists, and Allegro Group for those opera lovers (or soon to be opera lovers) under 35. 

Thank you to Repsol and TD for believing that arts can make a positive difference to the lives of young people. We thank them for their generous support of our community programs. 

Discover everything you need to know about opera, and Calgary Opera.

This section will teach you everything you need to know about Calgary opera, and opera - from buying a ticket to shouting Toi Toi Toi! at the end of the performance, and everything in-between. You can also discover our Emerging Artist Development Program. Each season, Calgary Opera provides up to eight young singers with the opportunity to study and perform under a highly prestigious professional staff of teachers and performers. This program acts as a bridge between post-secondary education and the professional opera world.

Enbridge believes in making communities culturally vibrant through investments in the arts. We thank them for their generous support of our Emerging Artist program.

We thrive with your support.

Ticket sales cover less than a third of the cost of producing live opera, even on sold-out shows. We rely on government funding, sponsorships from corporations, and charitable donations to ensure that opera is alive and well for our community.

Experience this classic Viennese operetta full of high-jinks and hilarity, where a masked ball thrown by a Russian prince leads to mistaken identities and eventually…jail.

This was Johann Strauss’ most beloved operatic work, and is filled with the infectious melodies that made him so famous. 

Die Fledermaus stars Sally Dibblee as Rosalinda, Tracy Dahl as Adele, Norine Burgess as Orlovsky and Roger Honeywell as Eisenstein. The production is conducted by Gordon Gerrard with stage direction by Glynis Leyshon.
