Des Moines Metro Opera is unique in many ways among local arts entities and regional opera companies. The company is particularly proud of its guild chapters that encompass a nearly 150-mile radius from our home offices. DMMO would not be able to generate the reach and scope of its activities without the tireless work from its four guild chapters in Ames, Des Moines, Indianola and Newton. Together, they make up a corps of volunteers that assist the DMMO office in many ways.
