Opera Columbus celebrates all that makes opera such a magnificent artform: great artists, breathtaking performances, beautiful music, diverse repertoire, and – perhaps most of all – passion, drama, and grand spectacle. Nothing moves like opera, and we are thrilled to bring all the glory of grand opera to the Columbus stage.
Community support is critical to Opera Columbus' continued renaissance, helping us to dazzle and delight audiences from throughout central Ohio with live grand opera, enrich the education of young people with our popular Education & Community programs, and support the development of young artists with programs such as the annual Cooper-Bing Vocal Competition.

Volunteer Support Groups
Through our support groups, Opera Columbus offers a variety of opportunities for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to get involved as volunteers:
Impresarios of Opera Columbus
Impresarios – Opera Columbus’s largest support group - works to raise awareness of opera in Columbus and Central Ohio. The group sponsors and organizes fundraising parties and events for Opera Columbus, and organizes Opera Excursions to regional opera performances. Impresarios has quarterly meetings, usually in members’ homes, with a mix of live music, a short business meeting, and ample food and drink.
The Women’s Guild of Opera Columbus
The Women’s Guild is the oldest support group of Opera Columbus. Members support Opera Columbus by devoting their time as volunteers, and raise thousands of dollars for the company through an annual fundraising event. The Women’s Guild holds bi-monthly luncheon meetings from September to May at members’ homes, combining companionship, a brief business meeting, and an entertaining and informative program.
