Opera Roanoke is the premier professional opera company in southwestern Virginia, bringing performers from the world's greatest stages to Roanoke. We offer fully staged productions, recitals and educational lectures. We collaborate with many other arts organizations in the area including the Roanoke Symphony.
Following the baton of music director and conductor David Stewart Wiley, the members of Roanoke Symphony Orchestra and its chorus deliver concerts that cover a wide spectrum of genres, regaling ears with everything from sci-fi soundtracks to masterpieces by classical composers. Roanoke Symphony Orchestra also surprises audiences with visits from renowned performers by the likes of singer-songwriter LeAnn Rimes and triple-threat Bernadette Peters. Before masterwork concerts, Wiley stages preconcert talks that give audiences musical insight on the pieces that will be performed. To complement its programming, the RSO records a podcast called Inside the Music, which broadcasts playlists off Beethoven’s first generation iPod.
