How do I access the Allegro Lounge?
The Allegro Lounge is located in the Eva & Marc Stern Grand Hall of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion during LA Opera mainstage performances. If you’re an Affiliate-level member or above, all you need to do is show up! Your name will be on the list—just check in with the attendant. Have a guest pass? Just provide your pass to the lounge attendant and you're all set.

Can I bring a guest to member events?
Most member events include an invitation for two people. We encourage you to check the specific event invitation for more details.


MEMBERSHIP DETAILS

When will I receive my member card?
We'll have your member card printed and in the mail within a few days of having received your generous donation.

How do I replace a lost/stolen member card?
We’re happy to send you a replacement card in the event yours has been lost or stolen. Contact us at 213.972.7277 or friends@laopera.org.

When will my membership expire?
LA Opera memberships become effective immediately and last twelve months, starting from the month in which you make your first donation. So if you make a gift in June, your membership will expire on May 31 of the next year.

When can I renew my membership?
The renewal period for LA Opera memberships is within three months of your expiration date. You can always renew early—just make sure to add a note with your gift. You can also make an additional gift to upgrade your membership at any time, and you’ll get the benefits of your new membership level until your initial expiration date.

How can I change my membership details?
If your membership doesn’t look quite right, just give us a call or email and we'll be happy help. Contact us at 213.972.7277 or friends@laopera.org.

Can I upgrade my membership level?
You can upgrade your membership anytime by making an additional gift. You’ll enjoy the benefits of your new membership level until your current membership's expiration date.

Is my contribution fully tax-deductible?
Any donation under the amount of $2,000 is fully tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law. (For gifts of $2,000 or more, the fair market value of certain benefits received may reduce the tax-deductibility of your contribution. A printed receipt with more details will be mailed to you.) To claim a donation as a deduction on your U.S. taxes, please keep your donation receipt as your official record.

What is LA Opera’s EIN?
