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 its first 24 months INO produced 72 performances of 14 operas in 24 Irish venues. We look forward to many more in 2020 and beyond.
