Chelsea Opera is a professional opera company which produces fully staged operas with chamber orchestra, a concert series and other musical endeavors.

Founded in 2004 by professional singers Lynne Hayden-Findlay and Leonarda Priore, Chelsea Opera serves two constituencies: singers and opera audiences. For singers, Chelsea Opera has given hundreds of artists the chance to practice their craft in a supportive professional setting in a NYC venue with chamber orchestra. For audiences, Chelsea Opera’s productions of new and classic repertoire provide enthusiasts and newcomers the chance to see high quality productions with chamber orchestra in a relaxed and welcoming location with ticket prices that are affordable to a broad spectrum of the community. Performances take place in locations where the intimacy and superior acoustics make the experience exceedingly attractive for all involved.
