Eugene Opera is Back!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
To all of you who responded to our Campaign to Restore Financial Health!
Eugene Opera successfully completed its campaign one month ahead of schedule! Thanks to the generosity of donors, large and small, Eugene Opera reached its fund-raising goal and ended the 2016-17 season entirely debt free.
And donors have already pledged over 40% of the individual donations needed for the 2017-18 season – including a $20,000 challenge that will provide a one-for-one match, doubling gifts made between now and December for the 2017-18 season. Donate now and your donation will be matched!
Yes, there will be a 2017-18 season!
Our comeback 2017-18 season will feature two productions, both of which were popular choices in our community survey done in February.
The season will open at New Year’s with the light-hearted comedy The Barber of Seville by Gioachino Rossini, under the baton of Maestro Andrew Bisantz, on December 30 (matinee) and 31 in Silva Concert Hall at the Hult Center. This classic favorite was last presented by Eugene Opera in 2005.
The season will also feature a second production, the tango opera María de Buenos Aires by Ástor Piazzolla, on May 4 and 6, 2018, in the Soreng Theater at the Hult Center. This Argentinian opera has been delighting audiences across the United States and around the world with its intoxicating music and dancing. It will be Eugene Opera’s first production in Spanish.
Big changes behind the scenes
Eugene Opera is hiring a full-time Executive Director who will be resident in the Eugene area, as part of its management restructuring. The Executive Director will take the lead on fund-raising as well as business management for the company. This new leadership is a key element in Eugene Opera’s plan for long-term financial stability and sustainability.
