Co-Producer Program

BECOME A CO-PRODUCER WITH US!

Palm Beach Opera’s Co-Producer Society is an exciting opportunity to ensure that world-class opera thrives in our community.

Get involved with YOUR opera!

Palm Beach Opera’s Co-Producer Society is a new and exciting opportunity to ensure that world-class opera in our community continues to thrive.

Our goal through this program is to have each production, which costs an average of $725,000 to produce, fully underwritten. As a Co-Producer, you help Palm Beach Opera remain a vital arts organization, and an important contributor to the culture and quality of life in South Florida.

With your support, you can directly co-produce one or more of our mainstage productions, or support a specified mainstage sponsorship such as a Lead Artist Sponsor, or a Chief Conductor Sponsor.

In recognition of the outstanding and generous support of our Co-Producer Society, we provide a great breadth of opportunities and recognition to enhance your experience with Palm Beach Opera. Personalized service, dinners, luncheons, and behind-the scenes events will make your experience exceptional.
