It Takes Many Hands

Support Your Community Opera

Help Us Continue

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.

Financial Support

Annual donations from individuals like you make up the largest portion of our contributed income. These donations, even in the smallest amounts, allow us to continue.

Volunteer with our Opera Guild

The Pacific Northwest Opera relies upon the extraordinary support received from the volunteer members of the Pacific Northwest Opera Guild. Throughout the year, they help with the promotions and fill important roles to help bring about our productions, fundraisers and special events.

The mission of the Pacific Northwest Opera Guild is to develop interest in, and facilitate the presentation of, live opera performances. Members volunteer time spent aiding in marketing, fundraising and educational activities. Tasks completed by Guild members suit a wide variety of skill sets and time commitments. All talents are welcome and are put to good use.
