Art changes lives! Supporting West Australian Opera’s young artists, artistic development, community and education programs can have a lifelong impact.

Giving to support the art forms we love can be a civic virtue, whether through bequests, gifts, donation or sponsorship.
The generosity of each and every supporter enables West Australian Opera to present and develop Australian artists, to reach out into communities, to put opera on the stage and with the power of our offering to enrich the cultural landscape of our State.

We invite you, if you are already a benefactor, to renew and perhaps increase your support of the value we provide. And, that if you have not yet given in support of our work, that you join our band of supporters. All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible, and every gift will assist us our work.

The arts lift people out of their everyday – Nicola Forrest
