Corporate & Foundation Partnerships

Corporate, government, and foundation partnerships are integral to economic development in the Triangle as well as the overall success of NC Opera, allowing companies the opportunity to enjoy a return on their investment while achieving their marketing goals with a very targeted audience. Audiences attending NC Opera performances are highly educated (50%-65% have graduate or professional degrees) with household incomes over $100,000 annually, and are decision makers for their families as well as leaders and influencers in their communities.

Advertising and hospitality opportunities with NC Opera can be tailored to meet your business needs and goals. Sponsors find great value in using NCO productions for executive receptions which nurture key business relationships, as well as for employee incentives and client gifts. Partnership with NC Opera also creates opportunities to launch branding initiatives and to reinforce community positioning.
