Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Festival Opera is a 30-year-old organization that brings contemporary productions and small chamber operas to the East Bay at affordable prices, providing greater access to opera goers. Along with standard repertory opera, Festival Opera has begun presenting productions by Asian composers or around Asian themes, building bridges to more diverse audiences and artists. Renewed support will allow the organization to increase its financial stability, ticket revenue, and interest in opera by presenting pre-production workshops to the community, giving audiences a chance to see the creation process and genesis of new works.
