WHY CHOOSE SBLO MEMBERSHIP?
For over 7 years, SBLO has provided our community with high quality productions of some of histories most beloved operas.
"My jaw dropped repeatedly at the quality..."
"Thank you for such a wonderful evening filled with such incredible talent..."
Each season, SBLO has pushed for higher-quality productions. The addition of live orchestras, professional lighting and costume design, and collaboration with other arts organizations in the community have increased the quality, but also the cost.
"What a blessing it is to have such gifted artists in the South Bend area."
Plans for the upcoming 2023-2024 season will bring some of SBLO's most enthralling productions to date...all while keeping ticket prices affordable. Your support will help to ensure sustainable opera productions in South Bend for years to come!
"BRAVO! ...I never thought that I would have the privilege of exposure to such exceptional operatic performance."
