At Opera Ithaca we produce an art form which allows listeners to open their minds for thought, reflection, and change. Even though we are guided by the ideals of inclusion and equality for all people, regardless of their ethnicity, we know there is more to accomplish in the operatic world. We stand ready to support Black artists and help to end racism in our industry. We mourn with the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and the countless other victims of senseless violence against people of color. We share your sadness and anger and make a commitment to help bring about awareness and change in their memory. Black Lives Matter.
