Opera on the Avalon

All of us here at OOTA send our caring wishes to those affected by the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus. In return, we deeply appreciate the outpouring of empathy and support during this challenging time. While we have not cancelled any upcoming summer performances, we sincerely hope you consider supporting other local community artists and arts organizations by donating the cost of previously purchased tickets to cancelled concerts and events in exchange for a tax-deductible contribution. In this crisis, cultural industries and workers need your support more than ever.
