Be a Ghost Light and Support our Artists

After the success of our Spring Artist Fund Drive, Tacoma Opera will continue supporting our local artists with donations from the community, so please continue helping the people who make opera possible for us. For without the artists and musicians, there can be no opera.

Tacoma Opera relies on the gracious support of individuals like you who care about and support the Performing Arts, particularly in uncertain times like these when our whole society is affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Without your support, we simply wouldn’t be here, so please give what you can.
Thank You!
