Since we receive no government funding, we rely on your generosity. In the past few years your donations enabled us to:
- Perform operas in a rural locations within walking distance of the people who cannot drive to events further afield.
- Provide full bursaries for several children to take part in our London workshop and perform on stage in an opera.
- Provide fees to all young musicians who perform on stage and in the orchestra in our productions.
- Provide fees to young Stage Managers and Costume Designers to ensure our productions look brilliant, and they can afford to develop their skills.
We’d love to continue with our work that now spans performance, research and education but we receive no direct funding from the Arts Council. We like to keep our ticket prices as low as possible so we can keep new audiences coming in for the same price as a cinema ticket. Below are just three of the ways you can start supporting us straightaway!
ANNIVERSARY SUPPORTER: £250
This year we need the help of some Anniversary Supporters to help us through the next 5+ years. In 2015 your help enabled us to purchase a stage piano and our own surtitles screen. This was a huge achievement as we were able to reach more venues and audiences that don’t have their own piano, and to screen surtitles above the productions no matter where we are.
As a Mozart supporter, your assistance enables us to keep the standard of our current performances at the highest level. We are able to ensure the props and costume add that extra magic to the production, and ensure the first time opera go-er gets the bug! Your help also ensures we have enough rehearsal time throughout the production process.
Our Mercadante project sits at the heart of Opera Holloway’s hopes to keep opera alive and evolving. Our work in researching and discovering old works, or commissioning something completely new. Your assistance allows these projects to come to life and ensures that opera stays very much a living genre.
