Your Support Makes The Difference


Five years ago, our San Diego community and supporters across the world rallied to save San Diego Opera from near closure. Since then, we have worked diligently to evolve into a nimble, streamlined organization, producing a wide variety of operatic masterpieces in our MainStage and dētour Series.

Great art and music are integral parts of the fabric of our community. Opera can’t exist in San Diego without your generous support - over and above purchasing tickets. Please help us sustain the successes we have achieved together by making an additional gift today. Help our company soar into our 55th season – and beyond.

Our Board of Directors recently made a very generous challenge gift of $500,000. Please help unlock and secure their pledge by making your own gift to this campaign – every dollar that you give between now and June 30th will be matched by our Board members’ challenge. This means your donation will have twice the impact in bringing the operas you love to the stage.

Your donation comes with some amazing member benefits, including invitations to exciting events and experiences. In addition we will recognize your generosity with some very special SDO branded gifts.

Thank you so much for your support and dedication to San Diego Opera. I look forward to seeing you at an opera in our thrilling 2019/2020 season.
