Founded in 2004, LOON strives to provide high-quality operatic productions. It seeks to increase audience awareness of opera as an art form, and to promote collaborative projects with other regional artists and organizations.
The past 20 months have been unlike any other. The learning curve for LOON has been steep, and the opportunities to create in new ways have been unprecedented. New stories have been told, artists have been paid, and LOON has learned how to create opera in a new format. We’ve stayed in touch with our audiences in elementary schools throughout the state, and in living rooms around the world.
LOON patrons understand that in every format, you are supporting the work that keeps opera singing in this part of the country. When we can’t share our stories in person, you’ve supported LOON’s efforts to keep our communities connected through singing-storytelling in new ways. You bring art to life, through COVID and beyond.
Your support of Lyric Opera of the North will keep us learning, growing, and singing until we all find ourselves safely gathered for a live performance - hopefully very soon!
- Ticket sales cover only one-third of the cost of any opera production. For online projects, it’s between 0 and 5%. Your gift is essential to LOON's continued success!
Thank you for your ongoing generosity toward Lyric Opera of the North. We'll see you at the opera!
