About the Opera Kelowna Society

Opera Kelowna is a registered, non-profit, charitable status society and member of the Canadian Association of Professional Opera Companies. Opera Kelowna is dedicated to equipping, educating, enlightening, enriching and entertaining diverse audiences through professional operatic performing arts and programming.

The performing season is focused on one fully staged and orchestrated professional opera each season with plans to add a second main-stage production in future seasons. Additional operatic expressions including concerts and outdoor presentations round out the season.

The society offers high-level education and outreach. Opera Kelowna’s Summer Intensive Training Program transitions vocal artists and collaborative pianists from their academic to professional careers. Internships in directing, conducting, costume design and accompanying are offered each season.

Our performing season is focused on one full mainstage opera each year with several operatic productions to round out the year. In addition, our Young Artist Vocal Education and outreach programs – In-Class Opera Productions and School Tours – takes opera to schools, engaging youth in our community in the cultural experience that is opera.
