Become A Donor

The ART of Giving to the “Lyric Opera”

Donor Support Makes Possible:

  • Helping build a professional opera company in Asheville, NC. The presence of an opera company designates Asheville as a destination city and attracts visitors, future residents, and businesses who appreciate music in its most classic form.
  • Performances from award-winning internationally and nationally-renowned singers in Asheville.
  • Opera education to aspiring singers for six weeks each summer through the Young Artist Program.
  • Collaboration between other arts and education organizations (Asheville Symphony and UNCA)
  • Affordable ticket prices. About 50% of production costs are covered by donations.


As an ALO donor fan, YOU will receive special per-announcements to buy show tickets in your favorite seat. This advantage is very important as most performances are sold out. In addition, YOU will be invited to special parties, and open houses through out the season, enjoying the growing excitement of opera in Asheville. And there is more – have you ever helped chose what show to produce, well and ALO donor fan can do just that. The artistic team will have you on a special list that call the office and talk about your vote for shows the ALO should plan. So “Make IT Possible” with your gift to the “Lyric Opera”.
