Opera Atelier posts surplus, celebrates an outstanding year

Toronto, ON (September 26, 2008) ĶJane Hargraft, general manager for Opera Atelier, reported the company closed its 2007/08 season with a $64,000 surplus posted on an annual operating budget of $2.4 million. Ms. Hargraft attributed the successful year-end results in particular to record-breaking ticket sales for Idomeneo and a significant increase in development revenue (+ 28 %).

We continue to build on the momentum generated last season, said Ms. Hargraft. Our subscription revenues are 14% ahead of last year and we are forging exciting new partnerships with donors and sponsors.
