Yes! Yes! Yes!
The Rochester Opera House, with its historic architecture and its storied past, keeps creative spirit alive in this community and the community is spiritually richer for it. It offers us the opportunity to come together and laugh for a bit, to cry for a bit and to celebrate the uniquely human ability to create.
My husband Bruce and I recently went out to dinner before a performance. I looked around as we ate and saw many of the same faces that I later saw at the performance. As we left we could see that downtown Rochester was vibrant.
You might ask, 'Is contributing to the Rochester Opera House a good choice for my charitable dollars?' My answer to you is a resounding...Yes! Yes! Yes!

Key Asset for Rochester's Future
The Rochester Opera House is truly a gem for the Seacoast region and the State of New Hampshire. It is one of the more impressive municipal theaters to survive in the 21st century and its careful restoration has brought detail and grandeur that is not only historically authentic but a compelling interior finish that brings the idea of theater as an "event" to modern audiences in a space that is both majestic and intimate. The fact that the majority of this quality work was accomplished through volunteers makes the restoration an impressive statement for this project and for the people of Rochester today. This work to restore the details of the past is a key asset for Rochester's future. Throughout New Hampshire, New England, and the United States, arts and culture institutions like the Opera House are the foundation stones that help build up and maintain healthy downtowns and are more often then not economic assets to the community.
