This year marks the 44th Season of the Annapolis Opera – and what a grand opera season it will be!

Playbill advertising with the Annapolis Opera offers a unique opportunity to expose your business to an exclusive and often difficult to reach audience. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, opera attendees are the wealthiest and most highly educated of all performing arts attendees. They also tend to reside in the suburbs, and, while a substantial percentage of attendees are seniors, the largest portion of opera attendees are in the 25 to 49 year age range.

Few other advertising mediums offer such an affordable and effective way to reach the type of audience that the Annapolis Opera attracts. Playbill advertising with the Opera means that your business will be featured in our professionally-designed and printed playbills, as well as on our website throughout the season. Annapolis Opera’s loyal patrons notice our advertisers playbill ads and show their appreciation for the support they give to the Opera by choosing to patronize those businesses.

We hope that you will consider supporting Annapolis Opera through playbill advertising in this, our 43rd Season. Playbill advertising is not only good business it is a wonderful way to support an important Annapolis arts organization.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you!
