About Us

Without Puccini, there is no opera; without opera, the world is an even drearier place than the evening news would have us think.” ~ William Berger, Puccini Without Excuses

Opera on the Vine was founded in 2017 by music educator, singer, and author Cynthia Vaughn. Realizing the number of local professional caliber singers, Cynthia networked with business associates and local venues to create a variety of performance opportunities while also giving our audiences an engaging, fun experience.


In 2022, Mitzi Holmes took over as owner and Artistic Director of the organization and has been part of the exciting journey of making Opera on the Vine a household name.


Our mission is to bring the beauty of opera to everyone in a fun and accessible way. We create a unique experience for you, our audience, by combining engaging storytelling, beautiful singing, and fun people - nothing snobby here! Follow us on social media to find out where Opera on the Vine will pop up next!
