Knoxville Opera provides the following annual services to our community:
• Three fully-staged professional opera productions
• Knoxville Opera Goes to Church concerts
• 100+ Education/Outreach Programs
• 11 Hours of Free-Admission Entertainment during the Rossini Festival International Street Fair
• An information resource about opera and musical theatre

Knoxville Opera’s mission is to provide the residents of East Tennessee with high quality, locally produced opera and to contribute to the future of the operatic art form by educating the community about opera and its role in our culture. Knoxville Opera, founded in 1978, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization presenting productions made possible, in part, by generous funding from our patrons, the Tennessee Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Knoxville, the Arts and Culture Alliance of Knoxville, the Arts & Heritage Fund and the Cole Foundation.
