Thanks to a generous $250,000 Next Generation Challenge gift from Cathy and Jim Berges and Noémi and Michael Neidorff, your support can mean twice as much!  If you choose to increase your gala support over your 2017 commitment, the increased portion of your gift will be matched one-to-one.  If you did not support OTSL’s 2017 gala and make a new gala commitment for the 2018 event, 100% of your gift will be matched.  

Gala proceeds raised above and beyond the net event goal will be designated for the Next Generation Fund, a new operating capital fund designed to honor Timothy O’Leary and support the company’s work in future seasons.  The fund will sustain Opera Theatre’s national role as an artistic innovator committed to engaging the next generation of artists and audiences.
