Support York Opera

As a registered charity, York Opera relies almost solely on its fund-raising activities, subscriptions, sponsorship and donations from friends and supporters. It is no mean feat to stage operas on the scale of Turandot, Don Carlos and Peter Grimes with a full orchestra of professional musicians and full artistic and technical requirements. That York Opera does achieve this is entirely due to the tireless work of its members and associates and the generosity of its supporters. Please see below for the various ways in which you can support York Opera.

Become a Friend | Associate Members | Donations | Sponsorship | Mailing list

Become a Friend

A Friend of York Opera is, essentially, a non-singing member of the company, paying a reduced annual subscription. Friends receive a regular newsletter, keeping them up-to-date with the current production, as well as details of fundraising and social events, concerts, open rehearsals and company information. They also have priority booking for each forthcoming production and a memberís vote at the Annual General Meeting.

If you would like to become a Friend or would like more information, please contact Duncan Campbell by phone on 01904 630658 or by email at treasurer@yorkopera.org.

Become an Associate Member

An Associate Member pays a further-reduced annual subscription. They receive the same regular newsletter, information and priority booking privileges as a Friend (see above). However, although welcome to attend, they have no vote at the Annual General Meeting.

If you would like to become an Associate Member or would like more information, please contact Duncan Campbell by phone on 01904 630658 or by email at treasurer@yorkopera.org.

Sponsor us

As production costs continue to rise, we are looking for sponsorship opportunities, whether from individuals or local businesses. We have created a variety of flexible sponsorship options to suit a variety of circumstances, but any package would typically include complimentary tickets and advertisements in our programmes. All sponsors will of course be acknowledged in our programmes and in our publicity material where appropriate.

We believe that any sponsor of York Opera would benefit from association with our society in a variety of ways. This includes developing opportunities to entertain clients or staff who are enthusiastic about opera, whilst showing a commitment to high quality performing arts which will appeal to the more discerning amongst your contacts. In addition any advertisement or acknowledgement in our programme has the potential to reach an audience of several hundred per show.

If you would like to become a sponsor of York Opera, or would like to discuss the sponsorship options available, please contact Hilary Dyson by phone on 01347 822610 or by email at sponsorship@yorkopera.org.
