Corporate Sponsorship

Sponsorship makes a real difference to Opera Columbus.

Contributions to Opera Columbus directly support our mainstage opera productions and Education & Community Programming.

Production underwriting and sponsorship enhances the artistic quality of our mainstage productions, supporting exceptional artists and staging.

Sponsorship of our Education & Community Programming helps to make our programs more accessible to all, including underserved communities, by allowing us to deliver enriching cultural programming to schools and students at minimal or no cost.

Sponsorship levels & benefits

Opera Columbus offers benefits for every size of business, and sponsorship benefits can be developed to address your company’s specific marketing and public relations objectives. We will work with you to put together a package that meets your company’s needs. Sponsorships may be designated to support an entire season of productions or programs, an individual production, program, or event, or even a particular aspect of a production, such as the Opera Columbus Chorus.
