Did you know that Indianapolis Opera is the only professional opera company in Indiana? In our 39th season we proudly celebrate 20th century opera with both grand opera at Clowes Memorial Hall and more intimate programming in our home, the Basile Opera Center (BOC). While this year we celebrate 20th century operatic works, next year we will celebrate our 40th "coming of age" season!
Last year Indianapolis Opera reached an estimated 30,000 students across Indiana and surrounding states through the Indianapolis Opera Ensemble (IOE) touring program. IOE is also training ground for many pre-professional opera artists who are contracted to perform in mainstage productions, present educational programming during a state-wide tour and also will train with lead guest artists, stage directors under the direction of James Caraher, IO artistic director.
Indianapolis Opera's home, the Basile Opera Center (BOC), provides outreach, rehearsal and performance space for artists and audience members alike. As we move towards the future, it is the Indianapolis Opera’s initiative to make the BOC a hub of artistic and educational activity for the neighborhood, our city and the region.
