West Edge Opera is looking for friendly and bright volunteers for the 2024 Summer Opera Festival held at The Oakland Scottish Rite this August 3 - 18. Help usher, sell tickets, pour refreshments, direct traffic, and welcome audiences this summer!

Volunteering with West Edge Opera requires attending an orientation and participating in a training. Volunteers shifts begin about two hours before a given performance time, and end about a half hour following the performance. Work among the lively West Edge staff and enjoy a complimentary ticket to opera, all while welcoming audiences into live performance. The festival this summer includes the world premiere of Bulrusher, Legend of the Ring, and Jacqueline.

Mission Statement

West Edge Opera looks at the art form through a new lens: we present early and contemporary works and re-imagine opera tradition to engage and entertain a diverse audience.

Description

Formerly known as Berkeley Opera, the company was founded in 1979 by baritone Richard Goodman. As the company grew under General Director Streshinsky and Music Director Khuner, the company was renamed West Edge Opera in 2014. Since then, West Edge Opera has presented world, American, and west coast opera premieres, and commissioned three new operas and several new translations and adaptations of classic works.
