MassOpera cultivates experiences for artists and audiences that challenge the status quo and reflect our diverse community.

We launched The MassOpera Annual Fund in December 2019 to help this great company sustain and grow for years to come.   The MassOpera Annual Fund provides unrestricted funding to pay our artists and administrative staff, to invest in technology and organizational infrastructure, and to underwrite groundbreaking new work, such as the current development of Caravana de mujeres, a new opera in development that we presented selections from at Opera America’s New Works Forum in NYC in January 2023.

Your tax deductible donation will help to ensure that artists are compensated for their time and talent, that MassOpera creates new stories and new experiences, and that MassOpera advocates for and presents more diverse representation on stage and off.  We look forward to our upcoming season in 2024, including new music from Carvana de mujeres to be presented at the MassOpera Party in March, a new presentation of The Mirror Cabaret in May, and our Pride Trivia Cabaret in June!

There are three major ways you can get involved with MassOpera:
  • BOARD: Are you interested in becoming a leader and visionary for a small non-profit arts organization, one that stands on the pillar of opera and looks to expand the definition of what an opera company is and can produce? Then consider joining our Board of Directors and help steward MassOpera into the future!
  • STAFF: Are you interested in honing your skills as a non-profit administrator? Do you wish to sink your teeth into the areas of Development, Marketing, Events, Operations? Consider joining our staff and work with MassOpera to develop your skills to bring you to the next level of your career.
  • VOLUNTEER: Do you want to give back a forward thinking arts organization, but don’t have the commitment of time to serve as a staff or board member? Consider volunteering at one of our performances and/or events.
