Contribute to the beauty, glamour and charm of our next production
As the financial year draws to an end, we invite you to consider making a charitable gift that will contribute to WAO and assist in presenting our new production of The Merry Widow.
Our 12 days of tax time list includes items and services West Australian Opera needs, uses or provides in order to present this exciting new world premiere production of Lehar’s beloved work. With items from $5 to $10,000 this is your chance to support WAO in our special 50th anniversary year. And remember, all gifts are fully tax deductible.
The Merry Widow was the runaway hit of its period. The beauty of the music, the glamour of the setting and the effortless charm all combine to seduce the audience, just as the characters on stage seduce each other. Yet at the heart of this work is a grounding force: Hanna and Danilo, who because of proud vanity, risk losing the great love of their lives – each other. The Merry Widow touchingly reminds us of the universal and all-pervasive need to love and be loved.
Thank you, and we hope to see you at The Merry Widow in July!
