Opera Philadelphia


Opera is for Lovers

Patron Program

We make magic with what you make possible.

Opera must not only be experienced; it must also be shared. Even when every seat in the house sells out, this dazzling blend of theatrical, orchestral, and vocal splendor requires considerable fundraised support from within our community.

When you join the Opera Philadelphia Patron program, your contribution will go directly to support all of the creative initiatives you love. Of course, this means world-class productions, the cultivation of rising young talent, and the casting of international stars. But it also means our award-winning educational and community programs. Ultimately, your contribution will ensure the presence you’ve come to expect from us as well as the future of Opera Philadelphia for years to come.
