The Production Funds
Endowed support of our core mission—to stage world-class performances for Santa Fe Opera audiences—helps us maintain artistic quality and promotes a climate in which creative risk-taking can thrive. We're seeking $5 million to double the income-generating power of two existing funds earmarked for just this purpose:
The John Crosby Production Fund was established in Mr. Crosby's honor to help underwrite one opera production each year.
The Laurence Alden and Aileen O'Hea Crosby Production Fund was begun by John Crosby in memory of his parents, to support one Richard Strauss opera or other rarely performed work annually.
