$3,000 Goal

Founded in 2004, LOON strives to provide world-class opera performance and education in the North, for all ages in a diversity of venues and formats. It seeks to increase audience awareness of opera as an art form, and to promote collaborative projects with other regional artists and organizations.

On stage this season (LOON's 19th!), you’ll see two operas that explore first impressions and immediate connections. Speed Dating Tonight! imagines a purposeful search for connection in a nerve-wracking format. La Bohème is a love-at-first-sight story that has resonated for more than a century. In school gyms, Little LOON patrons in nearly 40 schools across the northern part of Minnesota (and to Superior, Wisconsin), will experience Opera for the Young’s adaptation of Hansel & Gretel, giving more than 10,000 students a moment to savor an art form we hope they’ll claim for a lifetime.

  • Ticket sales cover only one-third of the cost of any opera production. Your gift is essential to LOON's continued success!
  • Sustaining monthly donations to LOON can be set up through our website's donation page.

Thank you for your ongoing generosity toward Lyric Opera of the North. We'll see you at the opera!
