Annual giving to Opera Parallèle, especially as part of our Artist Sponsorship Circle, sustains our creative community, and brings opportunities to get to know our family of artists and producers.

Regular annual giving from individuals is the main financial foundation on which OP’s artistic excellence is built, enabling OP to sustain our creative and community relationships even as we navigate a changing performing arts landscape. 

Giving plays a vital role in helping OP bring the very best talents to our stage by supplying the resources for OP to cover travel, housing, performance costs and fees for our creatives. Donors also enjoy behind-the-scenes access and benefits like attending rehearsals, meet & greets, program recognition, post-production events, and more.

“It’s such a revolutionary way of mounting this work…unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of … we are learning as we create. It’s not a common thing to be able to do in opera. What this company is doing…. what it takes to create make something new of a centuries-old form–it’s astounding… a privilege.” 

Hadleigh Adams

Baritone, La Belle et la Bête (2022)
