Ticket sales cover only a third of Haymarket Opera Company's costs. We rely on grants and the generosity of our donors to make up the rest so we can continue to mount our unique and acclaimed productions. Please consider joining our family of supporters by making a generous tax-deductible gift to HOC today.

Send your donation by check to:
Haymarket Opera Company 
1920 North Seminary Ave. 1F 
Chicago, IL 60614

Or use PayPal, including credit card options, to make your donation online. Please note that using the PayPal service reduces the value of your donation by more than 2%. Would you consider adding 2% so Haymarket Opera Company gets the full benefit of your donation? We appreciate your support and consideration.

Thank you for helping us bring these exciting early operas to the stage!

If you have questions about donating, please contact Craig Trompeter at

Donor Benefits

Our special thanks include occasional invitations to unique events such as house concerts performed by our outstanding musicians (for donations of $500 or more) or informal post-production receptions for a drink with musicians, designers, and others (for donations of any amount).
