Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Vital Opera believes that the medium of opera can have purpose in our society as a way of exploring crucial themes of human existence and generating opportunities for discussion around them. We see many pressing issues in contemporary American and global society and believe engaging these issues through an artistic medium such as opera has the potential to create greater connection and conversation in our communities. At the same time, we recognize that opera has a reputation historically for being exclusive, elitist, and Eurocentric and actively work to subvert this elitism and create programs and event environments in which people of all backgrounds and experiences feel welcome, included, and engaged.
