Syracuse Opera

The purpose of Syracuse Opera is to enrich the lives of the people of Upstate New York through locally produced opera, the one all inclusive art form that celebrates the beauty of the human singing voice energized through the spectacle of live theater. Its core values are Artistic Excellence, Integrity and Community Enrichment.
