Today it was announced that English Touring Opera will receive £1,577,015 in 2012/13, rising to £1,819,244 in 2014/15 from Arts Council England.
This represents an overall increase in funding of 9% in 2012/13, compared with the Regularly Funded Organisation grant received in 2011/12 (£1,440,196 – itself a 6.9% cut compared to the grant for 2010/11) which will enable ETO to sustain its current level of activity.
