Our New Season

First Coast Opera

It is the mission of First Coast Opera to serve Northeast Florida with professional opera performances for the education, cultural enhancement, and enjoyment of our communities, combining artistic excellence and the development of local and regional talent.

First Coast Opera to Ring in the New Year with La Traviata


Plan now to raise a glass to toast La Traviata on New Year’s Eve in Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College. What better way to ring in the new year than with this classic Verdi masterpiece, fully staged with orchestra? Treat yourself, and consider giving the gift of an experience to someone you know. This opera will be offered again on Sunday, January 2.



In January 2000, soprano Barbara Norris and her husband Anthony Fast produced a concert titled An Evening of Opera, leading to the formation of First Coast Opera in St. Augustine. Serving Northeast Florida’s First Coast region, the company began a series of concerts and staged productions of operas and operettas featuring local talent. Since that time, fully staged operas with live orchestras have been produced each year, with guest artists from throughout the United States.

We adore our volunteers!

"I have truly enjoyed being a volunteer and have attended almost every performance for at least 15 years!"

We love our fans!

"Thoroughly enjoyed our first opera experience, the HMS Pinafore! We will be back to see future performances."
