Welcome to the virtual home of the South Bend Lyric Opera.
On behalf of South Bend Lyric Opera, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for your patronage during the first two seasons of our existence. We are honored to bring you a wonderful team of professionals who seek to produce great operas and provide a stage for emerging and established talents in intimate settings. It is our goal to continue to focus on the artistic integrity of both singing, performance, and the use of space in order to extend the beautiful tradition of opera.
To present opera performances of the highest quality available to the widest possible audiences in the South Bend metropolitan area.
To perpetuate and enrich the operatic art form
To be creative and innovative in all aspects of opera
To take a leadership role in training, arts education and audience development
This mission demands a diversified, highly committed, qualified board of directors working in partnership with our fiscal sponsor, Ultreia, Inc, to create an efficient and effective healthy financial performance; involvement with our community; and an image that reflects our artistic quality.
"When the alchemy of talents joining music, singing, drama, poetry, plastic arts and dance is realized,
you get something much larger than life… well…you get opera."
SBLO Artistic Director
