Click to preview Livermore Valley Opera in the Bankhead Theater photo book

The Bankhead Theater became the home of Livermore Valley Opera (LVO) in October 2007. It is a marvelous venue, with astounding acoustics and great sight lines. The challenge of entering this new larger space, and the dedication of its many volunteers, steered the organization on a path to being recognized as an emerging professional opera company entering its 20th anniversary season.

These are the best of Dress Rehearsal photos taken by the official opera photographer, both volunteer and a patron of LVO , Barbara Mallon, from October 2007 to March 2011.
