Edye Broad’s love of opera has drawn her to downtown performances for years. Eli Broad has always recognized the economic impact of great cultural offerings like opera. Together, their views about the tangible and ephemeral benefits of opera led to The Broad Foundation’s support of LA Opera. More than $15 million has funded a lauded production of Richard Wagner’s The Ring series, provided operating support for the company and endowed the director’s chair, currently held by famed tenor Placido Domingo.
