Knoxville Opera


Entertainment is a source of inspiration, motivation, and joy. As artists, we are responsible for being an influence in our community, and use our art to promote positivity and connection


We aim to create works that are meaningful and thought-provoking, that challenge our
audience to think in new ways. By provoking thoughts that vary from our own, we build
connection with those around us.


Our work provides a creative outlet for emotions, helping to process difficult experiences, and a sense of connection to others. Music can provide a sense of hope and optimism, reminding people that there is beauty in the world around them.

Knoxville Opera Seeks to Create Vocal and Theatrical Experiences That Entertain, Provoke, and Console.

Knoxville Opera provides the residents of East Tennessee with high-quality, locally produced opera. We aim to invest in the future opera by presenting relevant work, providing community programming, and investing in our local artists.
