These are difficult times for artists and arts organizations. To protect our community, faculty, staff, and young artists, we have made the decision to cancel the public events of our Summer Opera Festival.
To help our artists weather this unprecedented crisis, we have created the

These are difficult times for artists and arts organizations. To protect our community, faculty, staff, and young artists, we have made the decision to cancel the public events of our Summer Opera Festival. Consequently, we have lost all tuition payments and ticket income, as well as payments already made to venues and vendors.
Yet, we must focus on our artists, who need us now more than ever, in this time of great uncertainty and financial distress.
To help our artistic personnel weather this unprecedented crisis, we are have created the Opera NEO Artist Relief Emergency Fund as a means for our community to be able to contribute directly to the well-being and future of these young artists.
We are experiencing a complete shutdown of the entire live entertainment and arts industry with no foreseeable end in sight. We need your help to honor our artists’ commitment and months of preparation by making a contribution toward funding their fees and stipends. We are working to raise $80,000 for the Opera NEO Artist Relief Emergency Fund, and we would be tremendously grateful for a donation of any amount.
Your support will not only help our artists in this critical moment, but also ensures that our company will be able to survive this crisis, and continue to provide crucial opportunities for young singers embarking on their careers. Read more about our plans for this summer, and how we are creating opera and working to support the artistic fulfillment and development of our young artists, despite the pandemic.
I don’t think any one of us will ever again take for granted the irreplaceable experience of a community coming together for a live performance, and the healing joy that music brings.
With your help, we can all come out together from this crisis stronger and continue to create and enjoy what we all love: live opera.
