Per the latest public health policies Opera Idaho’s office is closed. The staff is working remotely. Some events and productions have been cancelled or postpone. For the latest information click here.

As you may already know, we had to postpone our annual Gala. For the safety and health of all involved, Opera Idaho has moved our Black & White Gala Live Auction and Raffle to an online format.

The Gala is an extremely important event for Opera Idaho and comprises nearly 20% of the organization’s annual contributed revenue. Not only does it represent a substantial part of our overall annual fundraising, but it’s also a chance for us to celebrate with you, our community.

By supporting us at this crucial moment, you are investing in the future of the art form, in Opera Idaho as an institution, and the artists and staff that make it all possible. Show your support for Opera Idaho by bidding on exciting experiences and items, taking your chance in the raffle and contributing to dedicated program funds!

Bringing Opera to Your Home

We at Opera Idaho hope you are all staying safe and healthy. We know staying home is not easy, and many of you are turning to the arts to lift your spirits. Because the arts are so vital to the quality of life in our community, we will be sharing video recordings periodically from past Operatinis and recitals here on our website, as well as our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

The Metropolitan Opera in New York, The Royal Opera House in London, Teatro alla Scala in Italy, Bolshoi Theatre in Russia, and Teatro Colón de Buenos Aires in Argentina are among the many opera companies currently offering streaming services for opera lovers around the world. On the OperaWire website you can find a comprehensive list of all the opera companies currently offering free streaming. Click the link below to visit see the list.
