Opera Grand Rapids Breaks Ground On New Facility

“For most of its 42-year history, the company has presented operas by Mozart and Puccini in the comfort of DeVos Performance Hall. But it has managed its affairs from rented offices, stored props and costumes in the homes of staff and volunteers, and rehearsed for productions such as Bizet’s Carmen in vacant warehouses and empty storefronts. The company’s days of operating as a traveling caravan soon will be over.”
