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 new selections from at our MassOpera Party in March 2024.

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 a new presentation of The Mirror Cabaret in May, and our Pride Trivia Cabaret in June!
