About our Honoree
We are thrilled to honor Patricia K. (“Patty”) Beggs, the CEO of Cincinnati Opera. Her creative marketing campaigns helped effect the Opera’s remarkable turnaround in attendance in the late 80s and 90s, becoming a leading industry standard for new approaches in audience development. In her tenure at the Opera, she has worked personally and professionally to shine a spotlight on LGBTQ inequality. Patty brought LGBTQ issues to the stage when she oversaw the worldwide premiere of FELLOW TRAVELERS. Written by Gregory Spears, FELLOW TRAVELERS is a story about the systematic rooting out of LGBTQ people from government work in the McCarthy era.
