About the Metroplex Opera Company

The Metroplex Opera Company was founded to perform operas and operettas to enlighten and entertain the general public.

The Metroplex Opera Company will afford trained opera singers, actors, and instrumentalists in the Dallas-Fort Worth area the experience and exposure necessary for a musical career. To help young people appreciate opera, it will present short operas in area schools. A long-range goal is to present operas and operettas in towns without access to opera so that more people can appreciate this unique art form.

Members of the Company have presented Christmas concerts at Valley View Mall in Dallas, fundraising concerts at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, and concerts of patriotic music at retirement homes. It has performed 2 concerts for the Italian Club of Dallas, and has given two very successful fundraising concerts at the home of a patron.

The Metroplex Opera Company performed its first staged work, Puccini's Suor Angelica, on March 17 and 19, 2006, at El Centro Community College.

The Company presented its second staged production with orchestra, Sigmund Romberg's The Student Prince, on April 11, 12, and 13, 2008, at the Lakewood Theater in Dallas.

The company presented the Second Act of The Marriage of Figaro as a fundraiser at the Treemont Retirement Community in November of 2009.

In June 2010, the Metroplex Opera Company produced a double bill of Pergolesi's charming comedy, La Serva Padrona, and Mozart's hilarious comic opera, The Impresario, both conducted by Dr. Benson.

There are also fundraising concerts held from time to time.

All singers who perform with the Metroplex Opera Company are given honoraria.
