Alamo City Opera's Mission is to create a dynamic operatic experience, and to inspire our audiences, artists, and community. Our Artistic Mission
is to pursue excellence in the presentation of diverse repertoire,
through innovative original productions and detailed performance
practice, and to provide opportunity to artists throughout the US at all
stages of their careers, from student to mentor.
Our Community Mission
is to engage diverse audiences from San Antonio and beyond in the
communicative power of opera at performances and imaginative community
events, and to encourage the use of opera as a resource for educators to
enrich the learning of young people.
Intimate opera provides the patron with a very
intense and entertaining experience. We contract professional opera singers
from around the world and the highest caliber of local musicians for
Alamo City Opera is in its 6th season of professional intimate opera. The arts group is tearing down negative stereotypes
associated with opera by producing the art in English, in traditional and non-traditional settings and venues, providing the patron with an up close theatrical
experience, and priced so that everyone can afford to come. It is
succeeding in building today’s new opera audience with an average patron
age of 35 years. Since 2012, the company has produced 24 operas, many
of which have never been performed in San Antonio.
