"We connect to opera through its celestial stories that are envisioned and inspired by the music and metaphysical mystery of a human voice. Opera is alive, and timeless - never tiring, never history, always art." -Mara Devereux

A statement from VOC director and founder, Rosalinda Verde
My love of singing has always been an integral part of me. At the tender age of three, I distinctly remember asking my mother to put me on stage so that I could sing. Music creates an invisible yet palpable connection between the audience and the singer, and ever since my first performance at three year old, I have longed for that connection. Years later I was off to college at Point Loma University in San Diego where I was given the opportunity to participate in the San Diego Opera and Lyric Opera as a chorus member. There my opera education began, not expecting that it would open new vistas in music, but also the world.
I had always imagined opera to be boring, foreign, and irrelevant, but it grabs you, it is incredibly affecting, relevant, and powerful. The stories told are timeless and expresses what it is to be human, beautiful and ugly, perfect and flawed, and everything in between. It also takes tremendous training, dedication, and talent to sing opera. If ballet is the high art of the body, then opera is the high art of the voice. It celebrates our best and that is amazing to watch and hear.

My desire is, to bring this art that celebrates the human voice to Visalia and our part of the world. I want to share these things I have seen and heard with our school children and the community at large. We have such talented individuals in Visalia and the Visalia Opera Company believes, we can educate and attract an appreciative audience. At this time, The Arts Consortium oversees the Visalia Opera Company. The consortium is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Visalia Opera Company needs financial support from businesses and the community and is actively seeking sponsors which allows us to continue this endeavor.
