About Us


Northwest Opera was created by Tim Campbell to provide performance opportunities for “wannabes gonnabes, has-beens and those who don’t have a chance in…..” For those of you who haven’t experienced a Northwest Opera performance yet, you’ll hear wonderful music sung by extraordinary voices from right here in the community.

This is not your mother’s opera: these programs are an enjoyable twist of opera and operetta.
