San Diego Opera is committed to education more than ever. We recognize that filling the void that exists today in arts education is imperative, and that cultivating creative minds through engagement is paramount to the future of our art form and the health of our society.

Since its inception, the Student Ticket Initiative has made it possible for thousands of college students to attend San Diego Opera performances and experience world class singers, musicians, and productions first-hand - all for a nominal cost, thanks to the support of generous donors. Our data shows that the Student Ticket Initiative has created a young audience that is returning to purchase tickets and subscriptions to San Diego Opera performances– after graduating. Others have gone on to support us as donors and volunteers.

We hope that you’ll consider sharing your love of opera by making this opportunity available to local students. Please consider supporting this wonderful program with a gift now and help us cultivate the audiences of tomorrow.

Warmest regards,

David Bennett
General Director
