ABOUT FIRST COAST OPERA

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!"

Lidia Paula

We love our fans!

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