Opera Idaho (OI) is a level 3 (budget $1,000,000 – $3,000,000) opera company and the only professional opera company of its kind in Idaho. Opera Idaho is one of the fastest-growing opera companies in the U.S., having tripled its budget in the last 13 years. Opera Idaho is located in Boise, ID, noted by some as the fastest-growing city in the U.S.
Opera Idaho celebrates its 50th consecutive season in 2022/23 with a mainstage season of four operas plus two non-subscription productions and a free outdoor Opera in the Park concert. In 2009 OI moved into its new performance home, the restored Egyptian Theatre, long popular in the community for its unique architecture, location and selection to the National Register of Historic Places; OI also performs at The Morrison Center on the campus of Boise State University. The principal place of business for OI is its facility in downtown Boise as part of the Esther Simplot Performing Arts Academy, which also has facilities for Ballet Idaho and the Boise Philharmonic. The facility houses the company’s offices, rehearsal studio and meeting rooms.
