Our annual Festival Friends ensure the success of each festival and are essential to sustaining our high quality of opera.
As a Friend, you will have access to priority booking and will play an important part in making the Festival happen. Ticket income covers only half of the cost of each production. In this second year, we hope our Friends will continue to be generous in supporting us. Using the jargon of theatre, we have a menu of delights from which to choose.

Every stage has that unique place that projects the voice perfectly and produces a quality of sound to tickle the hairs on the back of your neck.
With this major gift you will develop a bespoke and personal relationship with the company, with invitations to events throughout the year. You can target your gift by joining a production syndicate, supporting a leading role or your chosen aspect of a production. Please contact Rachel Pearson, Director of Development on 01962 792201 for the full menu of possibilities.
