Lyric Opera of Los Angeles Sings the Praises of DocuSign eSignature Service

Non-Profit Hits High Note with Leaner, Greener Workflows

SEATTLE – March 24, 2010 - DocuSign®, the leader in on-demand electronic signature solutions, today announced Lyric Opera of Los Angeles (LOLA) employs the company's award-winning e-signature service in contracting performers for cultural events. After thorough research and completing a trial of DocuSign, the Southern California non-profit musical performance organization selected DocuSign's electronic signature service based on ease of use, quality, reliability and security.

"We first experienced DocuSign through a free trial and after using it, we were absolutely convinced it was the best e-signature tool available," said Laura Sage, executive director and founder of Lyric Opera of Los Angeles. "DocuSign helps us reduce costs and achieve greater efficiencies in contracting talent, and it's environmentally friendly. Plus, DocuSign customer service is by far the friendliest, most knowledgeable and easiest to work with. DocuSign makes the entire process an easy, positive experience."

LOLA will use DocuSign to contract vocal and musical talent for the 2010 performing season. Using a PC, Mac or mobile device, LOLA staff can quickly and economically send online agreements to performing artists, who can just as easily sign online and return the documents in minutes. DocuSign significantly reduces the time, environmental impact and cost of traditional paper-based contractual agreements to help this cultural non-profit stay green environmentally and financially.

"It is gratifying to help this cultural organization increase efficiencies, streamline workflows and reduce costs," said Steve King, president and CEO of DocuSign. "When running an organization on a shoe-string, every dollar counts. DocuSign provides Lyric Opera with operational cost-savings that let the opera focus on the performing arts rather than worrying about financial performance."

Lyric Opera of Los Angeles was founded in 2002 to bring lesser-known operatic works to the stage. After the successful production of Mozart's "die Entfürung aud dem Serail" and Marschner's "Der Vampyr," LOLA began producing a series of operatic performances in the Los Angeles area, including several West Coast premieres. It has garnered top musicians and vocal artists, returning year after year.  LOLA is an official partner with the Los Angeles Opera for the 2010 Ring Festival. For the festival, LOLA will be producing the rare, early opera "Die Feen" (The Fairies) written by Wagner when he was just 20 years of age. The Ring Festival features the participation of more than 50 arts institutions around Los Angeles that will produce exhibitions, concerts and educational programming related to Wagner and his music. LOLA is a noted partner among other highly recognizable institutions, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
