The Opera Fund

Did you know that less than 20% of our costs are covered by ticket sales? Yet the Fort Worth Opera is internationally recognized for its world-class productions and is able to produce works at the highest level due in large part to the generosity of individuals, corporations, and extraordinary lifetime gifts.


As a part of Fort Worth's performing arts community, Fort Worth Opera relies on the generosity, loyalty, and financial support of our donors. Your support provides us the opportunity to ensure quality and engaging experiences for a variety of audiences. 


Your contribution has a direct impact of Fort Worth Opera and allows us to continue providing excellent quality artistic programming, award-winning Children's Opera Theatre performances, community engagement outreach, world-class training for our Lesley Resident Artist, and breathtaking mainstage productions. With your support, your thoughtful involvement is critical as we continue fulfilling our mission by engaging with audiences through culturally rich experiences on the stage and beyond. Whether it be through individual giving, institutional or corporate partnerships, you are making an investment in the community and the future of the arts in North Texas.

Join our Fort Worth Opera family and feel the contagious enthusiasm your support provides.
