2023 Festival Highlights:


Thanks to our supporters, the Opera Festival of Chicago plays a vital role in Chicago’s rich and diverse cultural landscape. We are one of only a few companies in the world dedicated to producing and presenting rarely performed Italian opera masterworks. By doing so, we make these operas, and their cultural context, accessible to a wide audience and provide a stimulating and inspirational environment for artists and audiences alike.

When you make a gift to the Opera Festival of Chicago, you help us:

  • Foster the presentation of Italian opera masterworks that are almost never performed in the United States
  • Remove barriers to live opera by keeping performances accessible to all audiences
  • Develop the next generation of opera talent through a comprehensive side-by-side young artist training program
  • Showcase to an international audience the immense talent that has originated from the Chicagoland area
  • Bring leading opera artists to Chicago stages
