Mission: The Phoenix Opera has been established to perpetuate the performance of professional opera in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Founded by John Massaro and Gail Dubinbaum, the success of Phoenix Ooera will stem from presenting a consistent artistic vision: the promotion and performance of traditional operatic productions, drawn from a repertoire of popular works from the late 18th through early 20th centuries that continue to delight audiences throughout the world. Phoenix Opera's success will also stem from a strong business model with an absolute commitment to fiscal responsibility, exceptional marketing, effective fund raising, innovative educational outreach activities and the cultivation of new audiences throughout the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area.

We are new to the opera experience, and have attended the last three performances of the Phoenix opera during the last two years. We have been thoroughly entertained by the whole experience. We are amazed by the quality of the talent, costuming, sets, orchestra and everything else that goes into the production. It makes for such a nice evening out.
Every major community needs arts like this opera company and we are pleased to see our donations are being put to good use.
