Overview

Our mission at Fort Worth Opera is to educate, entertain, and expand the horizons of current and future audiences and artists through variety and artistic integrity.

Founded in 1946, Fort Worth Opera is the oldest continually performing opera company in Texas, and one of the 14 oldest opera companies in the United States. The organization has received national attention from critics and audiences alike for its artistic excellence.

Fort Worth Opera has taken a leadership role in engaging audiences beyond the operatic stage, while producing cutting-edge, contemporary operas. Beginning in 2017, the company launched the second phase of its landmark, 10-year Opera of the Americas initiative with Noches de Ópera (Nights of Opera), a groundbreaking campaign which introduces powerful operas, each reflecting the diverse cultures of new American audiences.

The 2019 Season will include internationally renowned opera director Francesca Zambello’s celebrated production of the Gershwins’ American masterpiece, Porgy and Bess; an emotionally stirring mariachi opera set on the eve of the Mexican Revolution, El Pasado Nunca Se Termina (The Past is Never Finished); and a wickedly funny world premiere, Companionship. The season will also usher in the seventh year of Fort Worth Opera’s critically-acclaimed new works showcase, Frontiers. Get the best price, the best seat and best benefits by subscribing to one of our 2019 subscription options.
