Bloomington Chamber Opera is a nonprofit arts organization in Bloomington, Indiana, founded by Benjamin Watkins and Annaka Grismer in 2019. Our goal is to bring fresh perspective to opera through innovative and accessible productions.
Every year, we create an original production of a masterpiece from the operatic repertoire with a chamber orchestra and a full cast of vocalists. We are guided by the spirit of collaboration: "Yes and..."
We want to create opera that's fun, interesting, and freely available to our local community, while providing valuable performance opportunities to young aspiring artists. We also partner with other nonprofits and community groups for educational outreach projects.
