Nevada Opera meets its goal
March 4, 2009
RENO (AP) ” The Nevada Opera will live to sing another day, thanks to donations from the Reno community.
The opera company said last month that it needed to raise $100,000 to stay afloat or face possible bankruptcy.
Opera association president Randi Thompson says that with a challenge donation of $50,000, the group has exceeded its goal with $165,000 and $20,000 more in pledges.
The opera will now proceed with a production of “La Boheme” in April.
Board members put out a call for donations at a town hall meeting in January.
