The Calgary Opera is a Canadian professional opera company in Calgary, Alberta, originally known as the Southern Alberta Opera Association. It performs in the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, accompanied by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and the Calgary Opera Chorus. It mounts three productions a year during its November–May season, as well as an annual concert or recital featuring a singer of outstanding international reputation.
Calgary Opera also employs a resident company of singers who have completed their training and are in the early stages of their professional careers. These singers cover principal roles, perform in smaller roles, and help take opera to the broader public in Calgary and in the communities of southern Alberta.
