Our commitment

Opera Mariposa is committed to breaking down barriers that can impede access to the arts. We strive to continually improve the accessibility of our spaces, content, and communications.

You can find access information for our projects on each event page and in our marketing materials, including on social media. To improve financial accessibility, our programming is either free, low-cost, or sliding-scale.

We understand safety is key to accessibility, and ensuring all are welcome in our spaces. Find some of our safety policies here:

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

We recognize that accessibility is a continuum, and there is always more to learn. As such, this page and our policies are a continuous work in progress.

Website accessibility

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

Our site also includes an accessibility widget, powered by a dedicated accessibility server. This helps us improve compliance with WCAG 2.1 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We regard the accessibility widget as an addition to, not a replacement for, person-driven best practices in web design.

You can enable the accessibility menu by clicking the accessibility menu icon (a round maroon-and-white icon of a human with outstretched arms). The icon is in the upper right corner on desktop, and the bottom right corner on mobile. After clicking the icon, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load fully.

All images on the Opera Mariposa website include alt text. We are in the process of adding image descriptions to key images throughout. We also include content warnings where needed, as part of our commitment to informed consent.

Despite our efforts, some website content may not yet meet the most intuitive accessibility standards. Please reach out if you discover issues, or wish to receive materials in alternative formats.
