About Opera Las Vegas: A full opera company, Opera Las Vegas is comprised of professionals in organization, planning, marketing, artistic excellence, and others.  OLV is a non-profit 501c3 corporation (EIN No. 88-04391165).  Funding is derived from ticket revenues, grants, sponsorships, donations, and fundraisers. The primary goal is to present two full-scale operas each year, one in June and one in September.  This extends the arts calendar of the Philharmonic and Nevada Ballet, which currently is from October to May.  The ultimate goal is to be the resident opera company in The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in 2011.

Guild.  The Opera Las Vegas Guild provides an opportunity for people who are interested in opera to get together socially. They meet every other month and the meetings are informal, informative and entertaining. The Chorus and/or the Young Artists usually provide the entertainment and Guild members provide the food.

Opera Las Vegas is committed to providing an opera experience for southern Nevada through opera education and artistic excellence for generations to come.  We need and cherish your financial support to help us achieve our ultimate goal.
