Our hearts are breaking for the community of San Antonio, for the global performing arts industry, and for the artists who will face financial hardships due to our recent decision to cancel the upcoming performances of Verdi’s masterpiece Rigoletto. We were greatly looking forward to sharing this extraordinary production with you, but the safety of our patrons, artists, and staff has been, and will continue to be, our top priority.

The loss of our spring production coupled with the unforeseen postponement of OSA’s biggest fundraiser, our April golf tournament, has placed our company and artists in an unprecedented crisis. Therefore, we have created the OSA Artist Relief Fund. This pandemic affects the singers, the orchestra, and our behind the scenes guest staff who are not paid for engagements like Rigoletto unless the performances are held. With cancellations worldwide, many artists are facing months of lost income. 

As the new General & Artistic Director of OSA, and as an artist, I am saddened by the circumstances we all face, but I am also confident that the community of San Antonio will come together to support the arts.

If you wish to help OSA performing artists in their time of need, please consider a gift to this fund and share our campaign on social media.
