Collective Naming Opportunities

Seattle Opera’s new civic home will be a place that allows us to share the magic of opera with everyone. We are honored to recognize capital campaign donors in the new building.

This stage level rehearsal hall will provide more than 3,000 square feet for artists to rehearse. It is positioned in the heart of the building, closest to Marion Oliver McCaw Hall stage. Give a gift in honor of General Director Emeritus Speight Jenkins and join so many others by designating your capital campaign gift to this special naming opportunity. Let us honor the legacy of a man that inspired us all to love opera.

Wagner and More Group Naming Opportunity

Wagner and More (affectionately known as WAM) is a social group for opera lovers to come together to attend performances, enjoy opera events, and travel. WAM is currently working towards a named opportunity in the new building. All WAM members who contribute to the capital campaign can designate their gifts to go towards this opportunity.

Are you a member of WAM and you want to contribute to the capital campaign? Then contact us at or (206) 389-7669 for more information on how your capital campaign gift can help WAM name a space in Seattle Opera’s new building.
