Community Circle: Opera For All

LA Opera has a great way for you to experience opera with your organization. Have you heard of it? The program is called Community Circle and it’s the perfect way for you to see the stellar mainstage productions we have this season (Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Puccini’s Madame Butterfly and La Boheme).

Embracing Our Community, One Voice At A Time.

We believe that experiencing and participating in the arts is a basic human right, essential to building community and part of LA Opera’s civic responsibility. Regardless of one’s background or means, opera is for everyone. We seek to ensure that everyone has access to opera and has an opportunity to participate in creating opera.

Through our Community Circle program, we are able to share the experience with students, low-income senior citizens, and underserved community groups. Hundreds of tickets are set aside in our orchestra level for every performance to accommodate these special groups, supplementing the extensive education and community outreach initiatives our company does throughout the year. (These tickets are not available for sale to the public.) Carefully selected groups will be able to experience opera at a significantly reduced price and, at times, even at no cost.

Blocks of tickets will be given to select schools, colleges or non-profit organizations only. No individual or family applications are accepted. Tickets will be given based on availability and need to groups that serve the following populations:

  • Full-time, for-credit college students ages 18 and up. May be accompanied by an instructor/administrator, limit one per 10 students.
  • Underserved students (ages 9-17). Students must be accompanied by enough responsible adults to ensure their good behavior. No more than one adult per four students is allowed, unless your agreement specifies otherwise.
  • Adults or senior citizen members of an underserved non-profit community group or organization.

    My daughters are 17 and 14, would they qualify if they are homeschooled? We are also a low income household due to my husbands disability.
