Established in 1992, Livermore Valley Opera has been a leading producer of world-class opera in the Tri-Valley region, and all opera performances are held at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore. This gem of a theater features an intimate 500-seat setting, with  excellent lines of sight and acoustics, helping LVOpera to attract talented singers and stage directors. LVOpera presents two full-scale opera productions per season, in spring and fall, and all auditions for the entire season are held once per year.

All auditions for the 2023/24 season have been concluded. 

For the 2024/25 season, auditions will be held in May/June, 2024, with details about the two new productions to be performed made available in March.
