Now more than ever, DMMO relies on the tremendous generosity of our donors to sustain the Company’s artistic excellence. To protect the health and safety of all DMMO artists, staff and patrons, all live performances and events were suspended for the 2020 Summer Festival. However, DMMO is committed to providing world-class opera and inspirational learning opportunities to audiences in Iowa and around the world.

In lieu of an in-person festival, DMMO is teaming up with Iowa PBS to share online and televised presentations of Britten’s Billy Budd, Dvoƙák’s Rusalka, Massenet’s Manon, Rossini’s Le Comte Ory and Hoiby’s Bon Appétit! These broadcasts will serve as the centerpieces of our transformed festival season and will be supplemented by artist recitals, cast reunions, interviews, prelude talks, and digital versions of annual DMMO events like Death by Aria, Stars of Tomorrow and Picnic & Puccini. All streamed broadcasts and events presented as a part of our 2020 Virtual Season will be free of charge and available on DMMO’s website and social media platforms. Your gift provides vital support that enables DMMO to continue producing thrilling operatic performances and serving the community with innovative education programs during a time when the world needs a vibrant arts and culture community now more than ever.
