Welcome to the San José Opera Guild
The Guild was established in 1947, as an independent guild, to support Opera in the Bay Area. The Guild has taken the opportunity to support several opera companies, with an emphasis on education and a passion for young singers. We support:
• San Francisco Opera;
San Francisco Opera Guild’s Opera à la Carte
San Francisco Opera Merola Opera Program
• Opera San José;
Opera San José’s Opera Outreach
• West Bay Opera:
• San José State University Opera Theater:
During the opera season, the Guild sponsors San Francisco Opera Guild lecturers plus West Bay Opera and Opera San José previews featuring singers coinciding with the yearly offerings.
The Guild organizes social events ranging from season opening dinners to educational programs. In addition, the Guild publishes a quarterly newsletter containing information on opera related events throughout the bay area.
