Opera Eight

"Stories, heard through an operatic lens."


Opera Eight: The Digital Opera Company. In 2012, Opera Eight started as a collective of artists in Des Moines, Iowa. Performances, called "salons," gave local singers and audiences of all ages a chance to access opera in a format that was approachable and available to everyone. In 2015, Opera Eight went dark and has made a deep dive while organizing into a completely different type of company.

In 2017, Opera Eight will resurface as a media production entity that brings singers from across the country right into your home. This "digital opera company" strives to make opera more accessible, both for artists and spectators, and to continue its legacy: to share a good story.
