About Us

Founded in September 2001, Opera Quad Cities is a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing, maintaining, operating, and supporting - either directly or indirectly - such activities, facilities, and programs designed to advance or support the musical art of opera and related programs in the community.

Genesius Guild, Opera@Augustana, Opera Quad Cities, and the St. Ambrose University Music Department – a unique slate of collaborators representing broad leadership in music performance within the bi-state region – have joined forces to continue the long tradition of summer opera in the Quad Cities, now in an indoor setting. Performances will begin in June 2018.

Previously, summer opera productions sponsored by Genesius Guild and Opera@Augustana were held in Rock Island’s Lincoln Park. The move to a climate-controlled environment will now provide productions with greater acoustics, lighting, and improved parking for the public.
