For its 60th birthday, Opera Omaha is giving local music fans a big present.

The company will launch an annual spring festival in 2018 — its diamond anniversary year — and add a fourth opera to its season each year during the monthlong event. In addition, the first festival will feature a world-premiere opera set in 1877 on the Nebraska prairie by the up-and-coming writing team of Missy Mazzoli and Royce Vavrek.
