2020-2021 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 receives Coronavirus Grant

First Coast Opera has been approved for a $50,000 award as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This grant will help the nonprofit opera company maintain and strengthen its administrative staffing over the next two years. Located in St. Augustine, First Coast Opera is the only professional producing opera company in northeast Florida, offering an annual series of performances and events featuring visiting guest artists as well as local and regional performers and technicians. FCO was one of 33 arts organizations in Florida to receive a CARES Act award.

We adore our volunteers!

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