Corporate Sponsorship Program

When businesses show their support for Madison Opera, they gain the loyal patronage of our audience and show the community they are dedicated supporters of the arts. Sponsors help bring our season to life and show that the company cares about the cultural life of our region.

Your company can sponsor a single performance or even an entire season. As a corporate sponsor of Madison Opera, unique and exciting benefits and promotional opportunities await you, your clients, and your employees. There are also numerous ways that your company can tailor your giving aside from production sponsorship.

For information on corporate giving, please contact Beth Tolles at (608) 238-8085 or
