About Us

Established in 1992, Kitsap Opera has been producing opera in the Bremerton and surrounding Kitsap communities. Leone Cottrell-Adkins, our founder, felt that the Kitsap communities needed accessible opera for families and artists in Western Washington needed another avenue to grow.  

Our chief mission is threefold: 

Showcase the artform in the community-partnering with other local performing arts entities

Provide outreach to community schools

Engage artists who may be new to the field
