The support of our Co-Producer Program is vital to the excellence of our productions and our reach into the community. Co-Producer gifts underwrite a substantial portion of production costs, and Sarasota Opera could not achieve the great success and be the world-renowned company that is without the generosity of our Co-Producers.

Please note that the 2020-21 Season donor benefits have been modified to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our patrons, artists, and staff. Click here to learn more.
