Acclaimed, intimate, live!

“Now more than ever, live theatre is a raw and electrifying connection between real people—on-stage and in the audience. This is so rare in our technological world. Opera tells our great stories with majesty and power… No other organization has meant so much to our family as Opera Southwest.”
– Melissa Daugherty


Blythe Gaissert and Benjamin Warshawski in Carmen, 2010

Opera is the most expensive of art forms, and ticket sales cover only a third of what it costs to mount a performance. We rely on support from individual donors, foundations, and corporations to cover the remaining expenses associated with staging operas and delivering numerous education and outreach programs to the community at large. There are many ways that you can support our efforts to ensure that present and future audiences experience the excellence of Opera Southwest.
