Each year Des Moines Metro Opera increases the volume of scenery, props and other production items created from locally purchased materials. The company employs substantial numbers of artists and attracts contributors and ticket buyers who patronize Des Moines and Indianola-area shops, restaurants and hotels for the festival season. According to a recent economic impact study, in 2012 Des Moines Metro Opera contributed more than $1 million in labor income and more than $4 million to metro area industries. The company interacted with 20,000 attendees living outside the metro area who contributed more than $200,000 in regional economic activity.
