Founded in 1994 by Producer-Director Muriel Hom, Opera Internationalâ€™s mission is to inspire an appreciation of Opera in young people, assist aspiring vocalists in preparation for operatic careers, and offer world-class productions at affordable prices.
Opera International runs an annual production of famed opera work to provide opportunities for young artists to perform lead roles alongside established singers who believe in this kind of apprenticeship and who are willing to share their skills to help young singers develop their craft. In addition, each artist is provided with a scholarship to further his or her career.
Over 40 young singers have benefited from working with Opera International and have enjoyed critical acclaim. Many have gone on to perform with leading opera companies, including the New York Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Seattle Opera. Washington Opera Theater, and the El Paso Opera.
2007 marks the fourteenth season of Opera International. This yearâ€™s performance will include Arias and Duets from Aida, Cavalleria rusticana, La traviata and Tosca.
