We are a professional opera company located in Oklahoma City founded in 2015 to present innovative, inspiring opera through performance and education, featuring young professional artists in Central Oklahoma. We aim to be the cornerstone of a dynamic operatic community in Oklahoma City, to expand the appreciation of classical singing, and to collaborate with existing arts organizations in order to enrich the lives of Central Oklahoma residents and the artistic scene throughout Oklahoma.

As a new opera company, we deeply appreciate any offer of financial assistance that you can provide, no matter how small. As a young opera company, we are not yet eligible for many of the grants that fund established organizations and, as you might guess, opera is expensive. Ticket sales only pay about 40% of our costs for each production and the rest comes from generous supporters of the arts. Painted Sky Opera is a 501(c)(3) certified organization, so your donation will be tax deductible.

As an example of how your donation can help Painted Sky:

$10 pays for: one prop or lighting gel
$50 pays for: one spotlight operator or stagehand for an evening
$100 pays for: one costume or set piece
$500 pays for: one singer for the production



Auditions for Painted Sky Opera's 2017-18 season will be held on March 17-19.
