Supporting your opera company goes further than you can imagine!

The generosity of audiences, donors and corporate partners makes it possible to keep opera live and accessible in Western Australia and plays a significant role in sharing powerful stories in theatres, schools, communities and regions.

However you choose to support West Australian Opera, we thank you for your kind generosity and shared purpose.

The support of individual philanthropy provides our lungs. It allows us to breath, 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, Chairman, WAO
