Now entering its thirtieth season, Opera San José is a well established arts institution with a reputation for excellent fiscal management. Well-managed from its inception, Opera San José has never had a deficit. Rather, the company has continually nurtured a modest cash reserve and has acquired, with no debt, two 24,000 sq. ft. operations facilities, and two apartment buildings (fourteen units total) for free artist housing. The company just received its third four-star rating from Charity Navigator for its impeccable record of fiscal management.
