Washington DC has a long history when it comes to staging opera performances. The opera, for the first time, was seen in the city following the end of the World War I and from there onwards, it started growing as the Washington National Opera Association. The opera continued to grow until the World War II and Great Depression hit the American soil. From those times till 1960s, the opera kept on being staged at various outdoor venues within the city. For having a proper opera company that would only function within Washington, the Opera Society of Washington was formed back in 1956. And later as the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts opened up in 1971, the Opera society moved to the performing arts center the following year. This turned out to be the major turning point in the history of the company as it was transformed into Washington Opera.  
 
From 1980 to 1995, the Washington National Opera saw a growth in the number of audience members that it attracted due to Martin Feinstein's policy to brings some of the finest artists to perform alongside the company. Apart from attracting some of the veterans of the opera world, Feinstein also attracted a large number of young artists and singers, who had previously performed at the Metropolitan Opera. That was the point when grooming new talent became one of the motives of the Washington National Opera.
 
Later on, under the supervisions of Domingo and Feinstein, Edward Purrington took charge of the company as its new Artistic Director in 1987. He kept the same position up until 2001. When Purrington took the charge, the company was growing significantly, and massive expansions followed in shortly after. The expansion process kicked off during the Feinstein's tenure as he significantly increased the number of performances that were given by the company during a season. Taking that step also significantly increased the sales of Washington National Opera tickets.
 
Domingo's tenure as the General Director of the company remained effective up till 2011. Before becoming the director general of the company, he was associated with the company due to the previous productions in which he took part either as a conductor or a tenor. Washington National Opera is known for staging some of the most important and unseen works of art. During its 2007-08 season, the company produced three unusual productions namely being Elektra, A View from the Bridge and Tamerlano. The following season also saw some unique shows by the company including Peter Grimes and Lucrezia Borgia. WNO also staged the performances of Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas, Gotterdammerung by Richard Wagner and Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss during company's 2009-10 season. Under the directions of Thaddeus Strassberger, the Washington National Opera also staged its premiere of Nabucco by Verdi in May 2012.
