Your support makes a difference! San Diego Opera exists today because of the generosity of our loyal fans and generous donors. Donations help create and sustain opera by bridging the gap between ticket sales and the true expenses required to produce the experience we all love and make it possible for the Opera to offer innovative, life-changing programs to people who live in our community. Giving also provides you opportunities to enjoy opera in a deeper way – and enjoy a community of other opera lovers.
