Main Street Opera

Bringing big voices and big opera to your neighborhood!

MSO is now in its sixth year of operations and seventh year of performing and continues to evolve as an organization. Its beginnings owe to the vibrant Chicago arts culture and a passion to extend its reach. Though Chicago has world-class operatic organizations like Lyric Opera and Chicago Opera Theatre, there are many in the greater Chicago area, especially the suburban population, who do not regularly experience professional opera, operetta, or music theatre at its finest. Long distances, expense of tickets and travel, and convenient access have left this large potential audience unfulfilled. Recognizing this demand through internal studies and informal surveys, MSO was formed in 2010.

MSO also took the important step of articulating its artistic character. The Company now includes three distinct methods of showcasing its core competency – MSO (opera only productions), MSO Singers (perform mixed genre Opera/Classical/Broadway) and Main Street Cabaret (performs only Broadway and popular music). Some of our professional performers are able to move between all three musical groups.
