Advocacy for Opera

The opera field relies on an active network of advocates to drive national, state, and local policies that strengthen the arts in American life.

OPERA America represents the interests of the opera community before the White House, Congress, and federal agencies. With advocacy partners in the arts and nonprofit sectors, we work to establish and strengthen federal policies in areas of arts funding, charitable giving, arts education, artist visas, and more.

At the local level, we call on opera administrators, trustees, appreciators, and arts workers to take action as advocates. Speak out for the public value of opera in your own community.

OPERA America is a founding member of the Performing Arts Alliance, the national policy advocate, leadership forum, and learning network for America’s nonprofit performing arts organizations, artists, and allies.
