Why Join?

OMAI is the first association of its kind created exclusively for OPERA managers worldwide and focusing on the very specialized business of opera. The COVID-19 crisis has exposed the urgent need for more exchange of information, support, and collaboration amongst professional opera managers.

That’s why we are building a new unified community in the opera industry with the mission of providing more transparency, building trust, establishing strong relationships and advocating for our members worldwide.
