About Fort Worth Opera

Founded in 1946, Fort Worth Opera is the oldest continually performing opera company in Texas, and one of the 14 oldest opera companies in the United States.

Under the leadership of General Director Darren K. Woods since 2001, the organization has gained national attention from critics and audiences alike for its artistic quality and willingness to take risks. Known throughout the operatic world as a champion of new and rarely-performed works, the company has taken a leadership role in producing contemporary operas. In 2007, when the company changed its fall/winter schedule to a condensed one-month long Festival in the spring, FWOpera staged its first world premiere, Frau Margot, and followed up the next season with Angels in America, Dead Man Walking in 2009, the world premiere of Before Night Falls in 2010, and Hydrogen Jukebox in 2011. The 2012 Festival staged the regional premieres of Mark Adamo’s Lysistrata and Jake Heggie’s Three Decembers, the first time the two composers’ works have been co-programmed, and the 2013 season featured the regional premiere of Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied, as well as the inaugural season of its new works showcase, Frontiers. In 2014, the company presented the professional world premiere of Daniel Crozier and Peter M. Krask’s With Blood, With Ink, as well as the regional premiere of Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Silent Night. Fort Worth Opera’s CD recordings of Frau Margot, Before Night Falls, Glory Denied, and With Blood, With Ink are available on the Albany label.
