Happy birthday to us: Schmopera is four!

Jenna Simeonov

Can you believe Schmopera is celebrating its fourth birthday?

That’s four years of conversations with opera singers, tips and tricks of the trade, hot topics, and of course, going to the opera.

We’re proud to call ourselves an artist-run publication, set on demystifying opera without dumbing it down. In this past year, we’ve expanded our opera coverage to cities across North America and Europe - our new contributors are an amazing, dedicated group of loquacious artists who keep our mission afloat.

So readers, thank you for four amazing years! We love the passionate feedback we get from you - proof that opera is alive, kicking, and surrounded by a feisty fan base.

Cheers, and thanks for the high notes! Now, where’s our cake?

Of course, if you like our work and want to show it: consider becoming a supporter of our Patreon campaign. Pledges start at just $1. (And there are perks!)
