In 2012, the effort of dozens of amazing professionals gave birth to FIO AMERICAS and its first season in 2013. It was an amazing adventure in Brazil with three fully staged operas touring in six different cities in the State of São Paulo.

In 2018, we expanded to Europe. Our acronym remains FIO for Festival of International Opera, while you will see either the organization’s full name or the name of a location underneath our logo.

 In addition to our partnership with with CIA. MINAZ in Brazil, we are establishing collaborations with other institutions for our upcoming seasons. In the next few days, we will reveal more information for the exiting future of FIO!   

Our Mission

FIO's mission is to discover future opera stars and provide these young artists with a true international operatic experience.
