At LA Opera, art intersects Hollywood, celebrities mingle with Los Angeles' social, political and business elite, and the world's most famous tenor, Plácido Domingo, presides over it all. If your company is looking for business development, client entertainment, branding, visibility or promotional opportunities, LA Opera will design a sponsorship package or corporate event to meet your needs, from intimate events to opera productions to season long Official Sponsorships.


Sponsor one of our mainstage productions, or be part of our community outreach with our public presentations. Galas and events, including opening night and annual gala celebrations, are true highlights of the season and a great way for your company to share the stage. Community/Education programs, including our elementary and secondary in-school operas and demonstration tours, are a great way to make an impact in our schools.

For more information on corporate sponsorship opportunities, please contact Marlinda Menashe at mmenashe@laopera.org.


  • Goods, services, media, and gifts in-kind provide important support to LA Opera and recognition for your company to LA Opera audiences. Whether your company supplies food and beverage, accommodations and travel, or technology and supplies, we rely on this support to make our productions and special events a success. If you or your company is interested in learning more about ways to help LA Opera through these means, please contact corporatesupport@laopera.org.
  • Matching gifts from your company provide the opportunity for you to double or even triple your contribution and receive more benefits at no additional cost to you. Many employers sponsor programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees with company or corporate foundation funds. If your company offers a matching gift program, please contact matchinggifts@laopera.org.
