Founded in 1967, Nevada Opera is Reno’s oldest performing arts organization and Nevada’s only professional opera company. A cornerstone of Reno’s artistic community, we provide employment for Reno’s musicians, theatrical workers, labor crews, and over 100 singers and dancers. Additionally, we provide a training ground for young artists at the local, national and international levels.
Most importantly, Nevada Opera contributes to the growing national perception of Reno as an arts and culture destination. Along with our collaboration with the Reno Philharmonic, Reno Chamber Orchestra and other local organizations, we have a vibrant presence at Artown.
Nevada Opera continues to present productions on a grand scale and our ability to maintain a healthy arts organization during the current economic climate has been an inspirational story for many other arts organizations across the nation.
