About us 2016


Organized in 2000 by a group of opera lovers bent on bringing great artists and beautiful music to the Inland Northwest, Opera Coeur d’Alene began as Opera Plus! Offering Opera on the Lake, Opera community education and a major Operatic production each season.

In 2009 Opera Plus! became Opera Coeur d’Alene and with new leadership and a renewed commitment to excellence, Opera Coeur d’Alene continued to offer new and higher levels of concerts, productions and education to Kootenai County and beyond.

In 2012 Aaron St.Clair Nicholson took over as Artistic and General Director quickly establishing a new trajectory for Opera Coeur d’Alene and her loyal supporters. Opera Coeur d’Alene is joining the ranks of world-class summer opera festivals by increasing it’s number of shows and productions in coming seasons.

Opera Coeur d’Alene is excited to continue to serve Kootenai County, the Inland Northwest, Idaho and Beyond. Opera, Give it a Shot!
