About Springfield Regional Opera
Founded in 1979, Springfield Regional Opera celebrated its 40th season in 2020. Now comprising a professional orchestra, regionally and nationally acclaimed artists, and a growing artistic and administrative staff, SRO brings world class opera to the Ozark Plateau including southern Missouri and northwest Arkansas.
We strive to:
- Foster a greater understanding of, and appreciation for opera;
- Provide a wide range of repertoire to engage both existing and emerging audiences;
- Present opera in a variety of settings and make it accessible to as wide a segment of the community as possible;
- Look for collaborations that provide access, outreach, and education for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds in our diverse community.
