elcome to Miami Lyric Opera website a company created to satisfy operatic needs of 
opera lovers in the South Florida area and to provide an accessible alternative for the enjoyment of the marvelous magic of the Opera.

After more than a year experiencing the consequence of still active Covid 19 pandemic, we are looking at a future with optimism that soon normality will return. Humans have faced similar experiences in the past and despite all the suffering and losses of all kinds, we returned stronger with new vision and hope.

Miami Lyric Opera is an established local opera company created almost twenty years ago practically from scratch and raising to a level of a well-recognized opera company. MLO’s productions are presented at South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC) a state of the art venue located in Cutler Bay.

Our mission at MLO is to provide classical opera production in its original version respecting the tradition, the composer, and the libretto. To bring genuine opera productions to the community at reasonable prices, to educate, encourage and create opportunities for young talents as well as seasoned artists. We dedicate with passion in creating and promote opera for the community we serve, bringing traditional opera at accessible prices. I encourage you all to follow us by subscribing to our our E-Newsletter that keeps you updated special previews, feature stories, interviews, and announcements. You can also like us on on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or view us on Youtube to learn more about Miami Lyric Opera events.

Miami Lyric Opera believes that a collective effort is the magic that creates quality of life and cultural enlightenment. This community outreach is only possible with the help of friends, benefactors and volunteers who are willing to dedicate their time and gifts to this great artistic endeavor.
