Cowtown OperaThe mission of Cowtown Opera Company is to increase the number of opera enthusiasts in Calgary by providing fun and interactive opera experiences. Whether it’s a Random Act of Culture in a mall or one of our widely entertaining shows, Cowtown Opera is breathing new life into an art form that has traditionally been misunderstood and stereotyped as elitist and boring (cue tumbleweed).

Cowtown Opera strives to provide entertaining yet educational performances that holler “Calgary!” with their special brand of western flavour. Come check out what Cowtown Opera has to offer, but don’t be surprised if you leave an opera lover!
