Message of Reconciliation

The Tulsa Opera family is heartbroken by the murder of George Floyd.

Policemen abused their authority. Children lost a father. Mother and father lost a son. Brothers and sisters lost a brother. All colors and all races feel the sorrow at this injustice. We look forward to seeing justice done in the courts.

This is not new. Tulsa has our own history with the 1921 Race Massacre. We have made some progress towards reconciliation, and need to continue our efforts.

Tulsa Opera supports all who gather in peace for justice, equality, and an end to racism and violence.

In solidarity,
The Tulsa Opera family

Coming Together as a Community

We need to take the next steps together towards reconciliation.

Here are select videos from our Staying Alive season and educational outreach programs, featuring performers, students, and teachers standing with us.

 

Education Outreach

Raise Your Voice!
For the past three years, Tulsa Opera has gone into schools where arts programs have been cut, bringing music back into the classroom.

A few of our 2020 Raise Your Voice! students and their teacher, Victoria Ellington, talk about how the program has impacted their lives.

Opera on Tour!
Our Opera on Tour! initiative allows more than 4,000 second graders to experience music, drama, art, and dance in one onstage spectacle.

Students at the Opera
Thanks to our generous donors, we’re able to invite hundreds of Tulsa students to see the opera for free.

Tulsa Youth Opera
For years, Tulsa Youth Opera has provided performing arts experience for any student entering grades 3-12.

Moving Forward Together

We are so grateful for the support of our community and our donors.

Generous foundations, corporations, and individual donors make all these outreach programs possible.
