Pre-season survey

Madison Opera would love to know more about its wonderful audience. In anticipation of the new opera season, would you mind helping us by completing this brief online survey? You’ll have the chance to tell us things like where you get your news and why you attend the opera. The whole thing should take less than five minutes to finish. Thank you in advance for your time and help!

What’s been going on

It has been a busy few weeks in the office as we continue to wrap up our fiscal year and buckle down for single ticket sales (NEXT MONDAY!!) and Carmen. In addition, we’ve spent some time completely rearranging the front of our headquarters here at 3414 Monroe Street in preparation for the arrival of our new marketing and development associate Laura Albrecht. Laura started last week and we’re thrilled to have her! Coming from Texas where she worked at Austin Lyric Opera, Laura is just starting her MBA in arts administration at UW-Madison’s Bolz Center.

We met the challenge!

Madison Opera is thrilled to announce that, thanks to the tremendous support of the community, our $100,000 Opera in the Park Challenge was a huge success! We raised over $50,000, which was then matched by a special friend of the Opera for a total campaign revenue of $101,396. This campaign attracted the largest community response we have ever experienced and helped to make Opera in the Park 2009 not only an artistic success, but a financial one as well. Thank you!
