2020 Impact Report: Addressing Community Needs

Through your steadfast support and belief in the power of music to bring us together, Minnesota Opera continues to be creatively vital. While keeping our communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic by postponing performances at the Ordway, we’ve been able to pivot our operations and keep our eyes squarely focused on addressing community needs. In doing so, we rely on a tried-and-true tool: the restorative and transformative power of opera.

COVID-19 Response:

Advancing Our Mission In New Ways

As we find new ways of advancing our mission while keeping our communities safe during the COVID-10 pandemic, we’d like to offer a few key updates: 

  • We’re committed to sharing opera with you all and are excited to launch At Home with MN Opera, a digital collection of videos, recordings, and music. We invite you to enjoy this online resource full of MN Opera news and updates, treasured Minnesota Opera moments from the past, and sneak previews of all that is yet to come. 
  • Minnesota Opera has partnered with HealthPartners in the Twin Cities to create masks for four large hospital systems, directly addressing the pressing public need to protect frontline healthcare workers. You can learn more about the new initiative in the Star Tribune or The New York Times.
  • Our Education department is taking its programming online, including multiple sessions per week for our after-school music program Music Out Loud and a new podcast for Opera Connections, our opera education series for older adults.
