give to opera roanoke

Opera Roanoke brings world class opera to the stage of Shaftman Performance Hall. This would not be possible without the kindness of our patrons. We encourage you to support our efforts to continue to bring outstanding opera to your stage!

There are many ways to give. We also encourage you check with your company to see if they offer Matching Gifts.

Gifts can be designated to our production fund, outreach fund, operations fund or endowment fund. Opera Roanoke gladly accepts VISA or MASTERCARD, checks or gifts of stock or other tangible asset.
