New Chapter for Opera Memphis

New Chapter for Opera Memphis

We're moving to Midtown!


After four years of searching for a new space closer to the heart of Memphis, we’re thrilled to announce that we signed a lease for a new headquarters in Midtown. This move supports our organization’s goal to build and establish stronger connections with the Mid-South community as a whole.

Our new headquarters will be located at 216 S. Cooper St. off Peabody Avenue – an area quickly becoming recognized as “PeCo.” Planting seeds in this thriving neighborhood will create daily opportunities for our organization to engage with Memphians where they live, work, and play.

We selected this space for its flexibility to accommodate a range of activities, such as operations, rehearsals, recitals, cabaret performances, and event space to host public film screenings of operas and other films.

Additionally, we envision our new home to be a more collaborative experience with local artists, and we hope to open our doors to growing arts organizations that do not have a space of their own for rehearsals, classes, and small performances.

Larger operatic productions during our regular seasons will continue to take place in theater venues across Shelby County, including Playhouse on the Square, Germantown Performing Arts Center, and the Scheidt Family Music Center at the University of Memphis. Our annual 30 Days of Opera will remain in its same format with pop-up performances across the county.

We’d like to thank the architects from brg3s who developed preliminary designs for the building and the team at Avison Young who helped us secure this space. Be sure to visit this page for frequent updates about our new space!
