The Duluth Festival Opera introduces, encourages, and presents opera in the Lake Superior region.

Our mission statement supports our vision to transform lives through the beauty and power of opera.   We are committed to quality operatic experiences that will inspire audiences through vivid performances created by outstanding local and national artists.

We also seek to encourage regional engagement with the art form through educational programs, touring, concerts, intimate cabaret performances as well as our fully-staged performances presented in the region’s unique indoor and outdoor venues. Whether through performing well-known favorites or intriguing new works ,  we dedicate ourselves to a meaningful operatic experience that is accessible to everyone.
