About

The American Chamber Opera Company was founded in 2011 by Chicago-based artists, with the goal of making opera accessible to performers and audiences alike.

American Chamber Opera’s mission is to ensure opera’s survival and growth by redefining traditional opera in a way that makes it accessible to performers and audiences alike. American Chamber Opera does this by performing full-length opera and oratorio that they have translated into English while still conveying a true sense of the composer’s intent.

In keeping with their goal of revitalizing contemporary interest in opera, the company looks to find young artists with exceptional talent to perform the lead roles in their productions in order to provide a venue for younger performers to hone their artistry, integrates fashion into every production, and introduces opera to the next generation by increasing accessibility to Chicago’s youth.
