History:
Madison Opera was founded in 1961 by Arline and Roland Johnson. Over its history, the company has grown from a community-based group to a professional company, with artistic highlights including the world premiere of Shining Brow in 1994, the first Opera in the Park concert in 2002, and a diverse repertoire that has spanned all corners of the operatic repertoire. The company currently performs three operas each season in the Overture Center for the Arts, ranging from classic works to more unusual and contemporary ones. Every summer, the company produces Opera in the Park, a free concert which attracts over 14,000 people to Garner Park for a spectacular evening under the stars.
