Beth Baumblatt, Daily Republic

“North Bay Opera is the best entertainment value in Solano County and, in fact, it is without question the finest cultural happening in our area. Opera is a unique experience that no other type of theater can duplicate. Everyone can enjoy opera and this community is indeed fortunate to have high-quality productions provided by North Bay Opera. We eagerly look forward to each exciting season of this highly professional Opera Group and hope to enjoy its performances for many years to come.”

“Opera is something that I didn’t grow up with. I thought it was too elitist. Was I wrong! The music, stories, and wonderful presentations by North Bay Opera changed my attitude and opened a whole new avenue for enriching my life. Thank you North Bay Opera.”
