Operas don’t just fall out of the sky and onto the stage. They're carefully crafted from start to finish by our dedicated team of talented professionals. Our tight-knit staff of behind-the-scenes magic makers bring opera to life in Los Angeles, from the first note to final bows. There’s no task too small or job too big for this mighty team— and we have 35 seasons of world-class opera to prove it.  

This is LA Opera. Care to join us? See our open positions here.
