Limited Capacity seats available

“Opera is for all” is a mantra that permeates the field’s messaging about performances and community engagement efforts. Providing access to opera aligns with the nonprofit aspiration to serve the general public and better communities.

Hear from a range of opera practitioners about how they grapple with this paradox and what strategies companies are employing to harmonize this intrinsic tension.
