Become a Sponsor in 2020

Sponsorship packages available April 1, 2020


Whether you are an opera buff or a community-minded philanthropist, please consider supporting Opera Edwardsville’s efforts to provide arts education and cultural enrichment in our community.

The best part of becoming a 2020 sponsor: Tickets! Enjoy the benefit of season tickets to all of Opera Edwardsville’s concerts and events. Tickets sell out fast, and sponsorship packages ensure tickets are reserved in advance of general sales.
