Support the Lily Opera Video Production

Help fund a fully staged video production of America’s great opera Lily by Garth Baxter and Lisa VanAuken. This opera, based on the Edith Wharton novel The House of Mirth, was 13 years in the making. The production, which will be streaming, includes a 15-piece orchestra, 16 singers, conductor, director, stage crew, costume designer, as well as the recording engineers. All artists, performers and team members are high quality professionals. Lily has the support of the Maryland State Arts Council and the Carroll Country Arts Council, as well as generous contributions from individuals. However, funding is still short.

100% of donations go to paying the artists and performers. Any amount helps!
