Our First Capital Campaign


The Raise Your Glasses Capital Campaign was launched in 2007 and since then has raised nearly $10 million towards its goal of $12 million.  These vital funds put Nashville Opera into an award-winning facility designed to inspire - the visionary Noah Liff Opera Center.  Now, Raise Your Glasses A Champagne Toast celebrates and builds upon that success.


Kresge Foundation challenge.

Nashville Opera received a prestigious Kresge Foundation challenge: if donations totaled $1,338,000 during the fundraising period ending October 1, 2011, the grant award is $350,000.  We hope to make an announcement soon!  Receiving this award could bring us within $1 million of our $12 million capital campaign goal. 


Every gift counts!


Help us harness and magnify the creativity found right here in Music City to bring the spectacle, the magic, the power of a 400-year tradition to the city of song!  As the nation cries “Bravo!”


OPERA NEWS, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, and NPR are intrigued and reviewing our productions, and THE NEW YORK TIMES declared our world premiere of Elmer Gantry nothing less than “An Operatic Miracle.”


We ask you to raise your glasses and take a look.  To see, experience, and believe.  To ignite your passion and support Nashville Opera in a way that is meaningful to you.
