South Texas Lyric Opera
The South Texas Lyric Opera, Inc. was founded in 2005 as the ProCantus Lyric Opera. It was created with the idea of bringing the fine art of opera to the Rio Grande Valley.
It is under the leadership of Maestro Mazias de Oliveira. The company has produced such memorable operas as Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, Pucinni’s La Bohéme, and Tosca, to Verdi’s La Traviata and Rigoletto.
Their beloved Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors, has educated and entertained more than 7,000 students from across the Rio Grande Valley.
