Opera Artist Emergency Relief Fund

Opera Artist Emergency Relief Fund

The purpose of this fund is to provide urgent funds to opera artists experiencing immediate cash shortages for basic necessities as a result of lost engagements in the wave of mass cancellations due to COVID-19. Following our artist survey last week, we discovered that 12% of respondents were already at risk of not being able to afford basic necessities like food.
