We at Pacific Northwest Opera, believe sharing the unique experience of live opera is important to the community in Northwest Washington to enrich and enliven it.
Most opera ticket revenues cover less than 40 percent of the costs of producing opera. Pacific Northwest Opera’s ticket sales cover closer to 60%, but like other non-profit performing arts organizations, we rely heavily on additional support to bring you outstanding live performances, educational and outreach programming.
That support comes in the from people sharing their talents, time, or financial gifts. All board, chorus, and guild members are not paid and each gladly shares what they can to keep the enlivening experience of opera available.
