$5,000 Goal

You can help Skylark Opera Theatre return to the stage with accessible performances of opera and music theater of the highest artistic quality, while developing and highlighting the finest local and regional talent.

When you attend a performance of Skylark’s production of Amahl and the Night Visitors, you will see how we put the gift you make today to work. Give to the Max donations, small and large, contribute in a meaningful way to bringing this wonderful family-oriented, holiday opera to life on stage.  

  • A $50.00 gift provides the costume for a Shepherd. 
  • A $100.00 gift means Amahl’s crutch and his mother’s broom are part of the performance. 
  • A $150.00 provides the royal look of one of the Three Kings. 
  • A $500.00 gift covers all of the stage props needed for the performances. 

Your generous support will help make our 2021-2022 production year possible. Ticket sales cover less than one-third of the cost of a production, so Skylark greatly relies on generous donations from individuals like you. We are truly grateful for you and your ongoing interest in Skylark Opera’s programming.

Making a difference in the lives of seniors

Skylark will be continuing a series of mini-concerts at senior residences throughout the Twin Cities throughout fall and winter. “Skylark for Seniors” premiered in the fall of last year as an opportunity to relieve some of the isolation felt by seniors impacted by the restrictions placed on them (and all of us) during the coronavirus pandemic. It was truly heartwarming to see and feel the joy and appreciation our audiences had for the music and the performers. Skylark Opera Theatre has been asked to present even more performances and we welcome the invitations to bring music and its healing powers to Twin Cities seniors.

About Skylark

Skylark Opera Theatre offers new and traditional repertoire performed with a modernized perspective in site-specific and cutting-edge venues. Originally founded in 1980, the organization adopted the name Skylark Opera in 2006, and transformed to Skylark Opera Theatre in 2016.  With a reimagined focus on innovative, intimate and accessible opera, Skylark Opera Theatre staged critically acclaimed productions of “The Tragedy of Carmen” and “Don Giovanni” in 2017, “As One” in 2018 and “Cosi fan tutte” and "The Most Happy Fella" in 2019.

Skylark Opera Theatre is based in St. Paul and produces work in both St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
