2017/18 Donor Benefits

You will notice some revisions to your 2017/18 donor benefit offerings compared to past seasons. Following the guidelines of Seattle Opera's new Long Range Plan, we are creating an opera company that continues to present high-quality opera experiences while also maintaining financial sustainability. Because you are our partner in making these experiences possible, changes to your donor benefits are being made in order to invest a larger portion of your contribution directly into the Seattle Opera programming you love. Please contact Donor Services with any questions at 206.389.7669 or donor.services@seattleopera.org.

Please note that these changes go into effect for the 2017/18 season, beginning July 1, 2017. Please scroll down to learn more.
