Opera Guild

From Mark Adamo’s one-act opera Avow, part of the production “Cards and Letters,” Fall 2017.

Begun in November 2013, the Opera Guild at The University of Alabama (OG@UA) has four purposes:

  • to support student artists in the UA Opera Theatre program
  • to increase the number of ticket purchasers, donors, and fans
  • to enhance the visibility of opera at UA, in Tuscaloosa, and beyond
  • to extend opera through outreach and education for diverse audiences in the community

Activities of the Guild include hosting receptions, providing greeters for opera theatre performances, and organizing events to showcase opera and student singers while providing support for UA’s opera theatre program in the School of Music. The Guild’s annual GALA is among the major fund raiser for the opera program and generates nearly 75% of the program’s annual operating budget.

We welcome new members, so if you or someone you know would be interested please contact Guild President Atta El-Kaddah by e-mail at battoota@comcast.net. You may also contact the Immediate Past President Francine Marasco at Francine44@aol.com or by calling 205-310-2348.
