Exciting news! There is a fulfilling and enriching way to support the arts in our community! The Delaware Valley Opera Co. has a wonderful opportunity idea for you…
Become a Housing Host for the 2023 opera season. Get to know interesting and friendly people while making a much needed and appreciated contribution to this season’s productions.
Our priority is quality, so much of our budget is spent on artistic talent. To afford high quality productions we rely on the support of our neighbors in the community for housing.
A great deal of consideration is taken to match Hosts and Artists to assure a positive experience for everyone. This is achieved by each host and each artist completing a questionnaire with specific questions about needs and preferences of living arrangements. This process has proven extremely successful and the only complaints we’ve received are the singers are so busy they aren’t around as much as the host had hoped.
Each host receives a letter from DVO for taxes, thanking and acknowledging the in-kind donation of housing equal to the room rates of local B&B’s or hotels.
There are three productions this season that need housing host:
“The Three Bears” – an opera for children: performance dates are Saturday morning, June 24th, and Sunday afternoon June 25th.
A total of 9 days - Artists arrive Sunday, June 18th and depart Monday, June 26th.
“La Boheme” – performances are on Saturday and Sunday, July 15 & 16 and Saturday and Sunday, 22 & 23.
A total of 19 days - Artists arrive Thursday, July 6th and depart Monday, July 24th.
“The Audition” – a spoof on the opera audition – performances are on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 18, 19 & 20th.
A total of 10 days - Artists arrive on Saturday, August 12 and depart Monday, August 21.
If you have an extra room, please consider supporting the DVO by being a host. And if you know someone who might be interested, please pass along information about this opportunity
Thank you in advance for your support of the DVO!
