The mission of Pensacola Opera is to enrich the culture of Northwest Florida by producing professional opera performances, educational programs and other opera-related community events for people of all ages, interests and backgrounds.
To be the premier arts organization in Northwest Florida, and to be the premier opera company of the Southeast.
In 1983 a small group of people interested in opera, including singers, parents of singers, singing teachers, professionals and business people, decided that Pensacola could mine our rich local talent to produce quality opera. They created a grassroots opera company called "Pensacola Chamber Opera." The fledgling Chamber Opera successfully produced Mozart's Così fan tutte, in English.
