Your support makes the difference! San Diego Opera exists today because of the generosity of our loyal fans and generous donors. Did you know that ticket sales only cover about a third of the production costs for each opera? Donations help create and sustain opera by bridging the gap between those ticket sales and the true expenses required to produce the experience we all love. In addition, your donation supports the myriad community outreach and education programs we provide throughout the San Diego area. Giving also provides you opportunities to enjoy opera at different levels of participation, with special events, perks, and privileges.
