it only takes a spark to create a fire

$100,000 Match Challenge Announced!

With your help, LBO can keep the fire we started 36 years ago burning strong! Together we can create Long Beach OPERA experiences that are Outside-the-box, Provocative, Engaging, Relevant, and Adventurous. Your gift today will help support the 2015 SEASON and LBO’s educational programs.

LBO does a lot with a little. We raise 65% of our operating revenue from the support of individuals, corporations, foundations and government, creating the most imaginative opera in Southern California! Your contribution today will help us even more because generous donors will match all new and increased gifts 1:1 for a total of $100,000 between now and May 31, 2015. If you’ve never donated before, this is the time to start! If you are one of our faithful supporters, please consider increasing your gift!

$100,000 Match Challenge is made possible by the generous support of:
Drs. Robert Braun and Joan Friedman
Sue Bienkowski and Wang Lee
Dr. Ronald and Sylvia Hartman
Sally and Nat Kurnick

Thank you for keeping our flame burning bright! I look forward to seeing you next month at our production of Gavin Bryars’ Marilyn Forever.

Truly Yours,
