The production of professionally staged opera is not possible without the financial and in-kind support of our patrons and the community at large. There are several ways for individuals and businesses to contribute to the success of the Annapolis Opera.

ADVERTISE

Playbill advertising with the Annapolis Opera offers a unique opportunity to expose your business to an exclusive and often difficult-to-reach audience. Playbill advertising is not only good business but it is a wonderful way to support an important Annapolis arts organization.

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 advertiser’s 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. 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!
