Bravo Opera Company
Founded in 1996, the Bravo Opera Company produces fully staged operas and opera scenes on the Patron of the Arts performance series in Brownsville. Recent productions include: Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, Mozart's Die Zauberflöte and Le Nozze di Figaro; Lehar’s The Merry Widow, Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Gondoliers, Offenbach’s La Perichole, and scenes from Mozart’s Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, and La Clememnza di Tito. Additionally, every October, the Bravo Opera Company performs a production of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel for local elementary school children. Over the years, this outreach production has introduced opera to thousands of schoolchildren from throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Bravo Opera won third place in the 2014 National Opera Association Scenes Program, graduate division in New York and second place in the 2014 National Opera Association Production Competition, Division I. Students enrolled in Bravo Opera learn first-hand about opera production, stage direction, set design, and costuming.
Join us for a Dia de los Muertos-inspired production of Engelbert Humperdinck's beloved opera, and bring the whole family! Bravo Opera Company's annual Hansel & Gretel is a great introduction to opera for kids, which is why hundreds of elementary school students join us for our daytime performances each year. Please contact us if you are interested in joining us this year!
