ABOUT THE LA Opera Relief Fund

relief fund anon lover

The LA Opera Relief Fund was created to help the company and its artists, artisans and staff withstand the economic fallout from the closures as a result of the pandemic. 

With ongoing uncertainty about when live performances can resume, the company is nearly completely dependent on the generosity of individuals like you. To help us continue planning for future seasons—and to compensate the hundreds of artists and artisans who have reached more than 750,000 people since March 2020 through our digital platforms—please consider making a donation to support the LA Opera Relief Fund today.

Susan Graham, one of the world's foremost opera stars, became Artistic Advisor to LA Opera's young artist program in 2017.

Hailed as “an artist to treasure” by the New York Times, she rose to the highest echelon of international performers within just a few years of her professional debut, mastering an astonishing range of repertoire and genres along the way. Her operatic roles span four centuries, from Monteverdi’s Poppea to Sister Helen Prejean in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking, which was written especially for her. She won a Grammy Award for her collection of Ives songs, and her recital repertoire is so broad that 14 composers from Purcell to Sondheim are represented on her most recent Onyx album, Virgins, Vixens & Viragos.
