Welcome to LOoP!

Absurdity done in Complete Sincerity

Welcome to Light Opera of Portland. The Light Opera of Portland features Gilbert & Sullivan and other light opera productions. This site provides information on the company, our upcoming performances, cast and crew, as well as information for LOoP members.


It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the upcoming performances of Cox and Box/Trial by Jury (April 17-May 2). With the current situation due to the Coranavirus (COVID-19) being very uncertain and the potential risk to our audience and our cast and crew we believe this is the best decision for everyone.

We are actively working on rescheduling the show to the middle of July with the hope that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat will have passed and we can resume a more normal life. Once we have confirmed plans we will pass that information on to you.

Please rest assured that we will refund any tickets already purchased or apply the purchases to the rescheduled performance. Please contact us at info@lightoperaofportland.org with your choice.

We greatly appreciate all of the support that you have provided us over the years and hope to provide more “Absurdity done in complete sincerity” soon. Like so many, this is providing a financial hardship for the company. Please consider donating to help us through, if you are able.
