Opera NOVA was founded in 1992 as a volunteer-based, non-profit charitable organization to bring the joy of opera to residents in the Northern Virginia community. Its mission is to educate adults and children alike in its local community by producing 3 to 4 operatic productions each year. Over 25,000 children have been exposed to opera in the Northern Virginia community.
One of Opera NOVA’s most popular children’s opera, produced multiple times annually, is is Monkey See, Monkey Do, an English opera written specifically for children. Under the direction of Jose Sacìn, Artistic Director, this children’s opera has helped to educate many under-privileged children who are not typically exposed to classical arts.
Miriam Miller is the president.
