Opera Cultura

Feautred Arts + Culture Grantee

Founded in 2008, Opera Cultura’s mission is to explore the Latino/Hispanic cultural experience through music theater and opera and provide opportunities for the community to participate as creators, learners, and performers. It accomplishes this mission by supporting and producing the work of composer/artistic director Hector Armienta, showcasing work by opera composers of Latino descent, and training young people. CFF grants have supported several of OC’s innovative productions done in collaboration with the School of Arts and Culture and local schools including: the first of its kind song cycle opera, Cuentos de Peregrinación/Tales of Pilgrimage, La Llorona/The Weeping Woman, River of Women/Rio de Mujeres, and their future production of Bless Me, Ultima.
