Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

Our hearts are heavy during this painful time for so many individuals across our state, our country, and our world.

Arizona Opera unequivocally denounces racism. We stand with those that demand equality and social justice for black people and for all people of color. We affirm our commitment to the communities we serve today—and to those communities that we can and must serve more fully tomorrow.

Performing arts organizations have a unique ability and responsibility to create a space for inspiration, thought, and discussion. Arizona Opera will take the time to listen and learn how we can be a better, more inclusive organization. We will examine our organization and the practices of our industry to do our part in creating positive, enduring change in the days, weeks, and years to come.

An important part of this process will include engaging in ongoing dialogue with community members. If you have thoughts or suggestions on how Arizona Opera can better serve our community, please send an email to Cassie Robel, Director of Education and Community Engagement at
