Help Get Diana to the Opera

Help Get Diana to the Opera

Jenna Simeonov

A Chicago-based non-profit organization is trying to help 92-year-old Diana see her first opera in about 8 years.

One Dream has set up a crowdfunding campaign, hoping to raise $1400 to pay for Diana's ticket for a Lyric Opera of Chicago production, as well as handicap accessible transportation, and a videographer to capture her night out. Diana says she's been to about 150 productions over her lifetime, and she has a collection of autographs from singers she's seen onstage; she had to stop her opera attendance about eight years ago, when she could no longer afford the travel and ticket prices.
