Live from the Hampton Opera Center


As part of our reimagined 20/21 season, the Live from the Hampton Opera Center series features opera artists who call Portland and the PNW “home.” These performances will spotlight artists we’ve celebrated together on the Portland Opera stage—with two former Resident Artists, Katrina Galka and Camille Sherman; local composer and Portland Opera Artistic Advisor Damien Geter; as well as two recent guest artists Martin Bakari and Vanessa Isiguen.

Each hour-long performance will be broadcast live from the Hampton Opera Center, Portland Opera’s home in Southeast Portland, where featured artists can follow health and distance protocols, reviewed by the company’s medical advisors, to ensure safe performance practices without an in-person audience. Pianists will include Nicholas Fox, Susan McDaniel, and Kira Whiting.

We are able to offer programming like this because of generous support from patrons like you. Please consider making a gift to Portland Opera today. You can donate online here. 


This series will be broadcast Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, available for free on our Portland Opera Vimeo and YouTube channels. It is only available online, and there is no need to RSVP or register.

Approximately 60 minutes, without an intermission.
