About La Bella Notte

The Nashville Opera Guild

Nashville Opera Guild members have cherished their role in preserving and promoting grand opera in Middle Tennessee through their support of Nashville Opera since its founding in 1981. The Guild believes opera is the gateway to all fine arts—poetry, music, drama, painting, design, and dance. Opera invites you into its emotional realm of matchless story-telling. By joining Nashville Opera Guild, you can help ensure that your children and grandchildren can enjoy this magical medium for years to come.



La Bella Notte is the Guild’s primary fundraiser for the Nashville Opera education and outreach programs. Nashville Opera is one of the fastest growing opera companies in the United States. Many of its young artists are now performing at some of the major Opera houses across the world.
