Opera SB Operation Eurydice Live Music Calendar
What is Operation Eurydice?
In the spring of 2020, Opera Santa Barbara shifted its focus to support local artists and advocate for all the performing arts and musicians in Santa Barbara, regardless of genre, while our theatres remained closed. We named this initiative Operation Eurydice after the Greek nymph whom the famed musician and poet Orpheus braved the underworld to bring back to life with the sound of his music. Our goal was to contribute to the recovery of Santa Barbara’s vibrant performing arts scene by making live performances of diverse content available throughout our community while directly supporting local musicians. Now that Santa Barbara County is starting to introduce permissions for live music in its health orders, we will continue Operation Eurydice as we:
- Bring live music back to as many places and neighborhoods in our community as we safely and affordably can
- Champion and employ creative talent from our region
- Continue to lead advocacy efforts for the safe reopening of the performing arts locally and statewide
