Toledo Opera Association

Toledo Opera creates opera experiences that celebrate, both in the theater and beyond its walls, what is unique to opera: dramatic, passionate stories expressed through glorious music and the powerful voices of classically trained singers.

In its 58th year as the only professional opera company in northwest Ohio, Toledo Opera performs its main stage productions, three each year, in the renovated 900-seat Valentine Theatre in downtown Toledo. Starting in 2014-2015, the Opera has included one American opera in its programming. The Toledo Symphony Orchestra plays at all performances, with the Toledo Opera Chorus and Children’s Chorus performing as needed. Near capacity or sold-out houses indicate the strong appetite for opera in the region.

In 1987, the company began offering educational programs which now include An Opera Is a Story for preschoolers, Opera on Wheels for elementary students and Student Night at the Opera for high school and college students. In June 2017, the Opera expanded its education offerings with the first two-week Toledo Opera Boot Camp at Toledo School for the Arts.

THE COMMUNITY

That's a wrap for walk-ins in 2020!

Counting the 54 cats we had come in this morning, we have performed 5,374 surgeries on outdoor cats this year! We are less than 400 cats short of our record number of community cats that we set last year, and (considering we closed our doors for 6 weeks during peak kitten season due to coronavirus) we are SUPER proud of this.

Additionally, we broke our daily walk-in record multiple times over the summer! At the start of 2020, the most cats we have ever had come in in one day for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) was 54 cats. Our current record is now 93 cats!

We are so grateful for the amazing people in our community dedicating their time, energy, and resources towards giving these community cats a better life. None of these life-changing surgeries would have been possible with out you. Thank you! #spayandneuter #tnrsaveslives #humaneohio #toledome #youwilldobetterintoledo #go419 #thankful #weloveourcommunity

Look at this gorgeous pupper!! She recently went on a DOTT Field Trip with her volunteer friend so she could enjoy the unseasonably nice weather we’ve been having. Here is what she had to say:

“This is little Jumping Bean. She is small and petite and I know how she got her name. Haha. She didn’t jump on me, but just bounced up and down beside me for a few minutes until she started walking perfectly on the leash. Nice car passenger, took treats nicely, and was friendly with people and dogs. She is lots of fun!”

We want all of our adoptable friends to spend the holiday season in a loving home whether it’s forever or just temporary until their forever family comes along. Want to help make that happen? Just visit our website, https://lucascountydogs.com/foster-program/, and fill out the online application. One of our clerks will then give you a call to set up a time to come down to the shelter. If your foster dog becomes a forever dog we will reduce our normal adoption fee to $15 plus a license! #adoptme #dogsonthetown #adoptable #DOTT #ToledoMe #explorethe419

On December 13th, 1985, Tammy Chambers joined the team at Bittersweet Farms. Since then, Tammy has served Bittersweet's mission in several roles, from direct support to animal care to human resources to her current role as our Quality of Life Specialist. 💚

Tammy has been a central part of our Farm family for 35 of our 37 years. She has "grown up" (in her words) alongside our participants, kept the early vision and history of Bittersweet ever before us, and mentored countless other team members over the years. 😍

Since tomorrow is her 35th work anniversary, would you join us in celebrating this milestone and thanking Tammy for her dedication to Bittersweet, our participants, and our mission? 🎊

🎵🎶 I love you. I love you.
Three words that are divine.
And now, my dear, I’m waitin’ to hear
The words that will make you mine.🎶🎵

Our very own blue eyed crooner, Sinatra, is waiting for you to say those three little words to him “You are adopted” 💙

Nothing would make his heart happier then having a home for the holidays. Want to make Sinatra’s dream come true?

Happy Sunday! Did you “catch” little Minnow on 13abc this morning in his tiny bow tie?

Minnow is about 4-4.5 month old and is SUCH a cool cat! He was brought to us after having been found with a fish hook caught in his mouth. The hook was removed and fortunately caused no damage.

Minnow is a talker, and always has a lot to say! He gets along marvelously with all other cats, both big and small, and seems to tolerate dogs. He absolutely loves to play and is always the first to pounce on a toy or string. There are guaranteed laughs with Minnow in the house!

Today starts our Un-purr-ecedented Adoption Special, to help make things a little brighter during these unprecedented times.

Today through December 19th all cat and kitten adoption fees will only be $20.20 plus you'll get a free face mask! Each day of the special, we will be introducing you to a furry friend via Facebook live or a post for a virtual "adoption event".

These are uncertain times, but one thing is certain and that's that you will fall in love with one of our adoptable felines. To view all of our adoptables and fill out an adoption application check out humaneohio.org. Since most of our kitties are in foster homes, once you have filled out an application we will contact you for a meet and greet!

Holiday Pic 2019➡️2020

Last year we took chip to @tdbperrysburg for his first picture with Santa. He was over joyed with all the puppies in the store.

This whole year has been different. We may not be able to do the same things we have in the past but nothing beats a season of holiday cheer. The lights, the songs and of course the hot cocoa; which the hot cocoa bombs are awesome.

Even though things are different I hope you have still found glimmers of the holiday wonder. Comment below your favorite holiday tradition. 👇 #ToledoMe

Whitehouse: We have been blown away by how this challenging year has unearthed new talents, interests, and passions in our participants. 💚 Robbie, who typically works in Horticulture when Day Program is open, recently created this gorgeous melted crayon art at home! 🖍 His DSP remarked, "we think we found a hidden talent," and Robbie's smile says even more than that...we think he discovered a newfound joy! 🥰⁠

P.S.- Interested in reading more stories about how our participants have learned and grown in unexpected ways this year? 😍 Check out our annual newsletter 👉 link in bio!⁠
