Opera on the James celebrates its 12th season in 2016 – 2017!
We are extremely proud to have had an opportunity to play a part in the cultural landscape of Central Virginia for such an extended period of time. We are energized to make the second decade more remarkable than the first and are committed to bringing amazing Opera to our community in the year ahead as we continue to focus on quality main stage opera theatre along with an expanded community engagement and education program. Our outreach activities bring this powerful form of musical storytelling to the people of Central Virginia and invite them to share in our passion. We are excited – we hope you are, too!
Founded in 2005 in Lynchburg, Opera on the James has performed over 25 operas in the past 12 years. In the year ahead it is estimated that over 6,500 people will enjoy our diverse offerings. Opera itself combines music, drama, dance and design – so many art forms to be enjoyed. Over 150 local, regional and national artists will perform…experience the best this art form has to offer right here in the region! Surprised? Give the Opera a chance – we’re sure you’ll like it!
