past Tuesday night, we officially closed the 55th Anniversary
Performance Season at Minnesota Opera. It was a big season, filled with
dreams, memories, life, and laughter, and we have you to thank.
you joined us for our official anniversary preview party - complete
with birthday cake - last fall, sang in our Voices of Opera adult
chorus, saw any of our riveting mainstage performances, enjoyed the Mixtape
concert celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Resident Artist Program,
or beamed proudly while your children participated in Project Opera, I hope
you'll agree that it was a big, beautiful year of fabulous musical storytelling
at Minnesota Opera.
With your support, we launched a
new brand, announced two new opera commissions (The Fix and Edward
Tulane), and performed an opera in Minneapolis for the first time in 25
years. Last year, our Board and Staff developed a new Vision for Minnesota
Opera: to sing every story. You've helped us make great strides in that pursuit
all year long, and we are incredibly grateful.
As we approach the end of our fiscal year on Saturday, June 30th, I
hope you will consider helping us close the year with a special gift to support
our work on and off stage throughout the state. Together we will change lives
by bringing together artists, audiences, and community, advancing the art of
opera for today and for future generations.
Thank you so much for all you do to help us create
magical, musical memories that are guaranteed to last a lifetime!
With heartfelt gratitude,
President & General Director
