SEEKING memorabilia

Do you remember Opera Idaho from “way back when?” It’s hard to believe, but “way back when” spans almost 50 years! The very first performance by then-Boise Civic Opera was Weill’s Street Scene, on November 30, 1973, at Boise High School. Boise Civic Opera became Boise Opera in 1983, then Opera Idaho in 1997. In November 2023, Opera Idaho will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. As we begin our 50th season this fall, we will be celebrating this monumental event all year long. As part of the festivities, we have plans to feature special displays of archived programs, photos, recordings and more!

Do you have any special memories of Opera Idaho’s past? Perhaps you have participated in a mainstage opera production as a named role artist, chorus member or a member of the orchestra? Did you ever volunteer as a supernumerary (extra) or help with sets, costumes or makeup? Were you a member of the Children’s Chorus? We’d love to see your photos or old programs that we may not already have in our archives.

Please email Merri Carr at the Opera Idaho office at merri@operaidaho.org with your photos or stop by our offices at 515 S. 9th St. during business hours. (Mon.- Fri. from 9:00am – 4:30pm)
