Over the past decade creating new works and building new productions has been a cornerstone of Calgary Opera, while bringing to life the timeless masterpieces of the greatest composers.

Calgary Opera has presented four world premieres, three Canadian premieres, and many company premieres.

Calgary Opera is also a co-commissioner of a new opera based on the great American classic Moby-Dick by composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer, in partnership with Dallas Opera, San Diego Opera, and San Francisco Opera. Moby-Dick had its world premiere in Dallas in April/May of 2010 with subsequent performances by the co-producing companies in future (dates to be announced).

Calgary Opera promotes young Canadian talent and is thrilled to have launched the Emerging Artist Development Program in 2006-2007. The most robust program of its kind in Western Canada, the program is geared at attracting some of this nation’s finest young performers to train within the context of a professional opera company and bridge the gap between the trained amateur and the professional singer.

Calgary Opera’s outreach and education programs are helping the company connect with the community more than ever. Let’s Create an Opera continues to take the magic of opera into Calgary schools, giving children the chance to write and present their very own operas to Calgary audiences.
