MetroPelican Opera

MetroPelican Opera, the education/outreach wing of the New Orleans Opera Association, was founded in 1988 by Arthur Cosenza. He chose Metro to represent the 7-parish population base of New Orleans, and Pelican for the state bird. MetroPelican has subsequently toured throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.
