Voice Your Support

Exciting News! We’ve met our campaign goal for Voice Your Support, which means that we’ll be able to go ahead and film our production of Handel’s Semele next month. COVID-19 has forced us all to rethink how we do business, and how to continue to deliver top-quality work at Alert Level. The funds from Voice Your Support will help enormously as we navigate 2021 and launch our new digital initiatives. THANK YOU to everyone who gave to this campaign, we’ll keep you updated. If you are not on our mailing list please click the link below to be first to know about these new initiatives and all things opera!
