Review for Greensboro Opera Company, Greensboro, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Greensboro Opera is a gem! In addition to staging quality performances of famous operas for local audiences they also are engaged in reaching out to our school children - many of whom would never otherwise have the opportunity to see live theater - to provide a view of all the exciting aspects of opera. I've seen the looks on the faces of those youngsters as they are drawn into the story being presented. It's a whole new wonderland for so many of them. In both education and entertainment we can count on Greensboro Opera for a fun adventure!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the faces of children attending their first opera.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

grant them additional funds so they could expand what they do and open the world of opera to more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dedicated, motivated, talented people who participate in the various facets of opera.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful giving, caring, talented, motivated people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring a broader exposure to this beautiful art form that is still not always so easily accessible to many.

Ways to make it better...

we could have reached even more youngsters.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

raising funds to complete their full mission.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it's important, even in challenging economic times, to keep our arts programs healthy - for both children and adults. It's part of what makes the USA so great.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
