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
   • Starting Arts

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 presents an annual Champagne Brunch fundraiser in the spring to increase our ability to make contibutions to opera programs in the Bay Area. To help the Guild with its mission, please consider joining or attending our fundraiser this year.

The Guild publishes a quarterly newsletter containing information on opera related events throughout the Bay Area.
