Production & Affiliate Sponsorship

“The support that we have been able to give has absolutely enriched my life.”

Be a part of opera in a way you never thought possible by becoming a Production or Affiliate Sponsor.
 
San Francisco Opera is recognized as one of the top opera companies in the world, heralded for pioneering new works and presenting a roster of international stars in engaging productions.

Production Sponsors and Affiliate Sponsors support the Company’s most crucial function: presenting opera at the highest artistic standards before as wide an audience as possible. Sponsors become closer to the creative process while making a positive financial impact on this cherished institution.
 
Become a Production Sponsor at $250,000 and above, and know that your gift funded a major segment of the San Francisco Opera season.
 
With your Affiliate Sponsor support of $25,000 and above, you may designate your gift to any aspect of an opera of your choosing.
