Golden Gate Opera performs professional opera in intimate local setting at prices you can afford. At the fund raising events you meet the performers and their families and they sing for you so close that you might feel their breath or hear the rustle in their clothes. These performers love their work and strive for excellence even at a small dinner party. Roberta runs the opera in such a way that people feel important and included - even the audience comes away with the feeling they have played a special role in being there. You know the money from the show tickets doesn't come close to covering all of the opera and administration costs. I donate and volunteer because I want more local opera like that in my life.

This was my first experience performing in Professional Opera. Learning to work together with other performers as well as all the professional people who were involved in order to make this happen was a tremendous honor. I had a wonderful time performing in this Opera. Learning and singing music by Puccini was a joy. My parents brought me to see Rigoletto in San Francisco, my first Opera, when I was a child. I guess I have loved it ever since. This is a great Opera Company and I am pleased to be a part of it. Roberta Becker puts her whole heart and soul into it and keeps it alive and thriving. Thanks to her, and her hard work, Marin County can enjoy some beautiful Productions! Looking forward to more of them.

Golden Gate Opera is a great company to perform with. I'm very happy to be part of the Emerging Artist program and am thankful for the opportunities that GGO has presented me and for (fingers crossed) future opportunities with them. I really felt like I was a part of the team and like I was needed and it felt very rewarding to perform with GGO. I found it to be a great experience, both supportive and educational, and I'll be really happy to perform with them again! :)

I think Golden Gate Opera (GGO) has a great mission. Arts and culture is an important part of people's lives and helps them experience the excitement of the arts. GGO helps interested participants experience these vibrant arts by providing people of various ages, economic backgrounds, and cultures the opportunity to be immersed by giving quality performances as well as programming. I also think it's great that GGO wants children to experience opera as well through their Hansel & Gretel opera
