Finger Lakes Opera produces fully staged operas of the highest caliber, engaging with a varied roster of professional artists, directors, and designers. Through the Tomita Young Artist Program, Finger Lakes Opera offers training and performance opportunities to emerging artists from all over the world and across a variety of backgrounds. Finger Lakes Opera seeks to cultivate and develop an understanding and appreciation of opera, bringing the art form to new and diverse audiences within the community and throughout the region. Founded in 2012 by current artistic director Gerard Floriano, Finger Lakes Opera became an independent non-profit organization in 2017. Executive director Elizabeth G. Long was hired in 2019, marking the beginning of FLO’s expansion and increased presence that continues today, including a major donation that makes the Tomita Young Artist Program possible.
