Spreading the wealth
Johanna Anderson reads through a program during an intermission at the Seattle Opera's I Puritani dress rehearsal at McCaw Hall. More than half of the opera's budget derives from donations, not ticket sales. In the 2006/07 season, 7,475 donors contributed to the opera, supporting not only performances but educational outreach to nearly 32,000 people and talent development through its Young Artists Program.
