Supporting your opera company goes further than you can imagine!

We value our donors and patrons and enjoy many shared opera experiences together. We invite you, if you are already a donor, to renew and perhaps increase your support. And, if you have not yet given in support of our work, that you join our special group of donors.

Donating to your opera company means that the magic of the opera can reach further and the people who create it can dream even more.

The support of individual philanthropy provides our lungs. It allows us to breath, it gives us oxygen. It is the very thing that puts a spring in our step and for that we are tremendously grateful.
