The San Diego Opera and the San Diego Civic Theatre have been intertwined since the theatre opened in 1965, and the opera staged its first production of La Bohème. The theatre was built specifically to handle the strenuous demands of opera, which encompasses the needs of a symphony, ballet company, and full ensemble of singers. The 2022-2023 season marks the first full opera season in three years, and San Diego Theatres is proud to support the opera as it paves its way into a strong future.
