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.

Principal Auditions

LVOpera is always looking for classically-trained artists to audition for both principal and supporting roles. 

At this time there are no principal auditions scheduled. The 2024-25 Season is cast, and the 2025-26 season is still under consideration.

Chorus Auditions

The Livermore Valley Opera Chorus auditions have closed.

The Fall production for 2024 will be Donizetti’s delightful comedy La fille du régiment (The Daughter of the Regiment), sung in French.

In the Spring of 2025, LVOpera will present Mozart’s darkly funny masterpiece, Don Giovanni, sung in Italian.
