Support Virginia Opera
Securing the youngest Opera audience in the United States by 2025
How can you make a scene this season? Support Virginia Opera's Annual Fund Campaign.
Community support and contributions from you, our valued patrions, account for over 60% of our budget. Gifts to the Annual Fund Campaign help fund the following artistic initiatives:
- Firsts of Firsts - ensuring that each season's opening night production is a company first, which will expand our repetoire, bring our audiences exciting new productions, and give us additional relevance in the opera world.
- Emerging Artist Master-Teacher series - providing sixteen emerging artists with the opportunity to work with some of the world's most respected and talented performers in an intimate, educational setting.
In addition to providing essential support for mainstage performances in our three statewide venues, donations to Virginia Opera provide crucial funds needed to send our in-school touring and outreach programs to over 125 schools and community venues each ear, reaching over 120,000 students and adults from Norfolk to Fairfax.
Your individual gift has an enormous impact on the Opera's annual programs and activities in addtion to offering a wide range of benefits.
Each season, private foundations generously found mainstage and educational activities throughout the Commonwealth.
Our corporate partners, in addition to receiving extensive recognition, provide us invaluable program assistance.
A variety of public events are regularly staged for students and adults in all of our performance regions.
Virginia is for OPERA Lovers
