Opera uplifts the soul; it touches the heart, and takes us to a unique place. Long Island Opera celebrates its 50th year of existence in Long Island, as we remain focused on our mission: The Long Island Opera will strive to become a first class opera company with a balanced repertory and high standards of production as exemplified by the best opera companies in the United States. Long Island Opera will earn a worldwide reputation for producing outstanding opera performances true to the vision of the composer within a community of generous patrons who support us.

We rely upon the community, to bring the world’s greatest operas to Long Island and enhance the cultural integrity of your community.  LIO’s mission is to provide you, the audience, with outstanding opera performance, opera awareness, and educational program.
