THE HAMPTON OPERA CENTER
In July, 2003, the company moved into its new eastside facility – The Hampton Opera Center – where, music and staging rehearsals, coaching facilities, costume shop, and administrative offices, including the Portland Opera Box Office, are all housed under one roof. Though the majority of our operas are staged at the Keller Auditorium and Newmark Theatre, small productions are occasionally presented at The Hampton Opera Center, including our Portland Opera To Go productions.

The Portland Opera breaks down barriers to enjoying any performance, from mainstage operas to public events.
The stories draw from and elevate our life experiences, so we make sure the opera is here for everyone.
PRE- & POST-SHOW EVENTS
Get the most of out your Portland Opera experience by attending pre- and post- event events that can illuminate important aspects of the performance. Join the community and make opera an larger part of your life.
One hour before each performance, join us on the first balcony for an informal and enlightening introduction to the opera you’re about to enjoy. Free admission.
After each performance, in the front of the orchestra level, General Director Christopher Mattaliano hosts “Back Talk,” a Q&A session with the audience and fresh-from-the-dressing room guest performers.
Portland Opera productions take place at Keller Auditorium and the Newmark Theatre.
The Hampton Opera Center at 211 SE Caruthers St. houses our administrative, production, and rehearsal operations, as well as All Classical Radio and Friends of Chamber Music.
