Opera Idaho’s offices are open.

Based on the recently outlined guidelines for opening up Idaho, Opera Idaho’s office re-opened to the public on Friday, May 1. Some of our employees will continue to work remotely. We will take the necessary precautions to safeguard the health of our patrons and employees. We recommend wearing a face mask while visiting the Opera Idaho office. Please continue to observe rules regarding appropriate social distancing while at Opera Idaho.

End of Year Appeal

The coronavirus has significantly impacted our organization. For the safety and well-being of our audiences, staff and artists we had no choice but to cancel our last production of the season, our annual Gala and several other events for the remainder of the season. And, the immediate future is uncertain.

We never would have imagined that we would be ending our fiscal year in the middle of a global pandemic. Our organization has a strong foundation and we plan to be here for you with the performances you love, for many years, once this crisis is behind us. But we need your help now to ensure we can continue to be a prosperous organization far into the future.

As our fiscal year comes to a close on June 30, please consider making a gift to Opera Idaho to help us make up for this substantial drop in income.

Funds Raised

Match $’s Unlocked

Thanks to everyone who has made a gift so far, we have unlocked all of Mrs. Esther Simplot’s $10,000 in matching funds. In these last days of the campaign, a group of generous Opera Idaho Board Members have pledged to match an additional $6,300. If you have not yet made a gift, there is still a chance to be matched dollar for dollar.
