Although a huge part of Operativo’s mission is to provide singers and audiences with the experience of full-scale productions (with costumes, orchestra, and sets), concert performances are also important. Operativo's concerts currently function as fund-raising opportunities for the artists and the company, as well as being fun opportunites for the audience to get to know some local singers and repertoire associated with the company.
In the future, the artistic goal of these concerts will be to include repertoire that’s usually only done in concert form: trio sonatas, cantatas, passions, oratorios, concert arias, and art songs.
In our concerts, all donations will be split among the singers and instrumentalists.
Currently Operativo Houston Inc is a non-profit, meaning all donations are tax-deductible! Benefits for everyone!
Listed below are the currently scheduled concerts. If performers or donors would like to see a concert with a specific theme or repertoire, including pricing for private house concerts, please use the contact form on the “contact” tab of the website.

CONCERT OPERA: (sung in English)
Communicable - December!
Music and Lyrics by Brian Yeakley
TBD (workshop in October, official art and actual show announcement coming in September!)
A nightmare before Christmas family opera, prepare to be entertained at this silly bout of miscommunication! There will be chalkboards available where families can snap photos and post when they're either at home or at the show, situation permitting.
The opera is set in modern times. The Hypochondriac friend, Ipo, partially overhears their friend Zero's diagnosis. Ipo relays this information to the nurse who is shadowing the doctor for the day, and she takes matters into her own hands and starts a quarantine believing it to be a disease that turns people into zombies. See the insanity ensue!
If you end up interested in mounting a production of this opera we will provide you with information on how you can do that! Additionally, we will be providing online and in person chalk boards and chalk for guests to make their own fan-art to be posted everywhere!
