December 2016

Thanks to our supporters, several thousand people from Maine and beyond
enjoyed PORTopera’s acclaimed performances of Carmen and The Medium
this year. We appreciate the part that our community played in supporting
this art form that is unique in its ability to bring a moving story to life
through vocal and orchestral drama.

We are excited about the plans well underway for our twenty-third season in
2017 which will feature a new production of Giuseppe Verdi’s beloved La
Traviata. Performances will be Wednesday, July 26 and Friday, July 28 at
Merrill Auditorium in Portland. Tickets are already on sale—and would make
great Christmas gifts!

Your support makes opera in Maine a reality. We know there are many
friends and neighbors who have yet to experience the cultural treasure that
is PORTopera. Our mainstage and Studio Artist productions will continue to
be presented in July and we strive to bring additional programming to our
audiences all year long. These programs include special concerts by opera
stars, performances of experimental new operas, our popular Serenade
series, and educational programs which include opportunities to meet and
converse with singers, directors, and experts in the field.

With your help we can raise $30,000 by December 31. This is a goal that will
enable us to advance our mission and insure that Maine continues to
present operatic experiences that inspire everyone. We need your personal
investment to make this happen.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation to help us meet
our goal of bringing opera to the people of Maine? We simply can’t do it
without you. You can make a lasting impact toward a richer quality of life for
all those touched by PORTopera.

Thank you for your support,

PORTopera is a nonprofit organization, and charitable contributions are crucial to our mission of producing worldclass opera, and expanding our education and community engagement programs.

Revenue from ticket sales covers only one third of our annual budget. To bridge this funding gap, PORTopera relies on tax deductible donations from friends like you. Every dollar counts and your contribution to the annual fund will help keep PORTopera’s passion alive!
