Our Role

As Ireland's national opera company, we produce high-quality, accessible opera in venues throughout Ireland and overseas.

Opera has the power to move and inspire and our mission is to give everyone in Ireland the opportunity to experience this.

We are dedicated to an unprecedented commitment to showcasing internationally-acclaimed, world-class Irish opera singers alongside guest artists from all over the world. We are also committed to maximising public engagement with opera, brokering and sustaining key institutional partnerships and ensuring strong leadership and a sustainable governance structure.

In 2018, our inaugural year, we presented eight productions across 14 venues reaching thousands of people. 2019 will see us build on this output with even more great opera for all.
