Cimarron Opera’s mission is to provide aspiring performing artists and creative technicians a forum for their talents and opportunities to gain valuable training and stage experience, while providing cultural enrichment and education to various audiences across the state and beyond.
Cimarron Opera’s history began in the spring of 1975 when Thomas Carey and Carol Brice Carey founded the Church Circuit Opera Company, which was renamed Cimarron Circuit Opera Company in 1981. Thomas Carey and Carol Brice Carey were renowned international performers and professors of music at the University of Oklahoma who sought opportunities for aspiring artists to sing on stage. They also hoped to bring superior operative productions to Oklahoma. The artistic spirit of the Cimarron Circuit Opera Company’s founders continue to provide inspiration to succeeding artists and directors.
