Maryland Opera, Inc. is a non-stock corporation, exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, contributions to which are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable under law. In an effort to increase the sustainability of opera, in late 2017, the Modell-Lyric decided to spin-off all matters concerning opera to a separate entity, fully independent from the Lyric. That entity became Maryland Opera, Inc., with all of its resources and energies devoted to the production of opera and opera-related education and outreach programs.
