Program Advertising

Des Moines Metro Opera produces two full-size, full color programs of the highest quality, printed on premium paper stock. These magazine-style programs are distributed to every audience member free of charge. Filled with fascinating articles and supplementary information about the operas and the composers, as well as artist biographies and interviews, our program books are often displayed in patrons' homes long after the season ends as coffee table or souvenir books.

In 2022, opera guests from 41 states and 4 countries attended our Summer Festival. Approximately 20-25% of our audiences came from outside of Iowa, 66% of our patrons are women, 78% have a Bachelor's Degree or higher, and 59% have an annual income of over $75,000.
