The birth of Valley Opera and Performing Arts (VOPA) has been a long time coming. After nearly fifteen years of creating glorious music and theater as Center Stage Opera, we decided that our company name should reflect all the musical genres we encompass: Opera, Musical Theater, Jazz, and even Rock n Roll. We are most definitely still an opera company, and we remain committed to filling the need for classical vocal arts in the community. However, our love for music and theater extends beyond the classical arts into other musical genres as well.
VOPA may be our new name, but our commitment to artistic excellence and community service remains the backbone of a company that has been presenting professional musical performances for almost fifteen years. By changing our name, we are renewing our commitment and connection to the Valley, and better representing the diversity of our programming.
