Supporting your opera company goes further than you can imagine!

When you take your seat and settle in for a night at the opera you are joining a huge number of people who make the performance come to life – singers, orchestra, chorus, conductor, director, set and costume designer, lighting designer, repetiteurs, production manager, stage manager, assistant stage managers, mechanists, fly operators, stage crew, orchestral management, dome operators, surtitle operator, head of wardrobe, dressers, make-up artists, stage door keeper, front of house manager, ushers, box office, food and beverage manager, bar staff, cleaners, security, marketing, development, producers and production.

This group of people, some of whom have been planning and working towards this performance for years, then honing their efforts together across the rehearsal period are now ready to welcome the most important group, the audience, to the theatre.

In addition to buying tickets to a performance, donating to your opera company means that the magic of the opera can reach further and the people who create it can dream even more.

“There is no question that the support from government and from the corporate sector provides the life blood for a company like ours. But it’s the support of individual philanthropy that provides our lungs. It allows us to breathe, it gives us oxygen. It is the very thing that puts a spring in our step and for that we are tremendously grateful.”  Andrew Pascoe, WAO Chair
