Become a Corporate Sponsor

There are benefits to becoming a corporate sponsor of Opera Wilmington!

Through corporate sponsorships, local companies gain access to Opera Wilmington’s audience of more than 1,500 (and counting!) music lovers. That audience is made up largely of well-educated individuals who have significant disposable income.

Your company can choose a sponsorship level that suits your needs and your budget. The benefits include such things as having your display banner at our events, being credited in our opera and concert programs, having an ad in those programs, being acknowledged on Opera Wilmington publicity materials, and even being mentioned from the stage during performances.

We will work with you to tailor just the right sponsorship package for your organization.

Opera Wilmington’s audience continues to expand and diversify. Our 2017 production of Georges Bizet’s Carmen and our 2018 production of Johann Strauss, Jr.’s Die Fledermaus drew more students and families than ever. We had a sellout crowd for our first winter production this past January, Amahl and the Night Visitors, Gian Carlo Menotti’s family favorite.

This year we have launched our Opera Wilmington Guilds giving opportunities. Significant new outreach initiatives are on the horizon as well.

We would be very happy to have your company affiliate with Opera Wilmington! To learn more, contact us here to learn more. We’re confident that you will agree that becoming an Opera Wilmington corporate sponsor is beneficial to you.

Getting comfortable with opera

Corporate Sponsorships I have been an opera lover since my teens and I knew that set me apart somehow as the very word “opera” seems to turn many people defensive. It scares them. This is still true, as a recent survey showed that a significant number of responders...
