Develop interest and support of the next generation of Opéra advocates, and actively contribute to broadening the Opéra’s audience.


The goal of the Young Associates Committee is to help the Opéra’s administration meet its goals of broadening and renewing its audience, reaching out to the corporate milieu, and mobilizing the community of young professionals. This provides unique opportunities for discussion and learning, as well as privileged access to opera. The Committee was formed in 2009 by a group of young professionals.
