Our commitment

Opera Mariposa is committed to breaking down the barriers that can impede access to the arts. We strive to ensure that our spaces, content, and communications are as accessible as possible.

You can find accessibility information for our projects on each event page; in our audition and opportunity listings; and in our marketing materials, including on social media. Our Covid-19 and Communicable Diseases Policy can be found here, and our Anti-Harrassment Policy can be found here.

We commit to sharing accessibility information transparently, to prioritizing informed consent, and to centreing the most impacted.

We recognize that accessibility is a continuum, and we must always strive to improve. As such, this page and our policies are always a work in progress.

Website accessibility

Opera Mariposa’s website is built following accessibility standards that provide markup for screen reader accessibility following WCAG 2.0 standards. It includes keyboard navigation, aria labels and focus control.

Our site also includes the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget, powered by a dedicated accessibility server, to improve compliance with WCAG 2.1 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We regard this as an addition to, not a replacement for, person-driven best practices in design, testing, and remediation.

Our accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon (a round blue-and-white icon showing a human with outstretched arms), which appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.

All images on the Opera Mariposa website include alt text. We are in the process of adding image descriptions throughout. Despite our ongoing efforts, some website content may not yet be fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. We welcome all feedback should you encounter issues, or if you wish to receive materials in alternative formats.
