Opera is the complete art form, but we can’t bring it all together without you!

While opera centers around stunning voices, it takes much more to make a production.


Without costumes, wigs and makeup, a singer can’t fully embody her character. Without lighting and sets, the audience isn’t transported to another time and place. Without a stage director and stage manager, a singer wouldn’t know when and where to make a grand entrance. Without musicians in the pit, there would be no lush orchestration backing up the singer and moving audiences to tears.

We couldn’t bring all of this together without YOU.

Ticket sales account for less than one-third of our annual revenue. Our budget this season is $3.4 million and we need to raise $2.7 million to bring the grand details to life!
