New Orleans Opera Annual Report

The 2020-2021 season will be remembered with great historical significance – a year of change, innovation, and creativity, and a story of resilience and adaptation in the face of adversity. When the pandemic forced us to close our doors to live audiences, your support created new ways to share operatic performances, fulfilling our responsibility to our audiences and communities. We never lost sight of our mission to enrich the lives of all people by producing opera of the highest artistic quality, and with new channels of accessibility, the opera offered an innovative range of virtual and in-person events and performances to audiences in New Orleans and around the world.
