Nashville Opera Guild

Nashville Opera Guild members have cherished their role in preserving and promoting grand opera in Middle Tennessee through their support of Nashville Opera since its founding in 1981.  The Guild believes opera is the gateway to all fine arts—poetry, music, drama, painting, design, and dance.  Opera invites you into its emotional realm of matchless story-telling.  By joining Nashville Opera Guild, you can help ensure that your children and grandchildren can enjoy this magical medium for years to come.
