Supporting a Production

Supporting a Production

ETO’s low ticket prices ensure our work remains accessible but mean we will never be able to survive on ticket sales alone.

Each season, our new productions are made possible by a growing number of supporters forming a syndicate, whose generosity ensures works rare and well-loved works make it to the stage for all to enjoy.

Joining a syndicate gives you the opportunity to get much closer to the production process, joining us at every stage of the process, from initial designs, through rehearsals and the first night performance, while also enjoying social occasions, from intimate chamber recitals to dinners with fellow supporters and the cast.

Donations of any amount are gratefully received, with a suggested donation of £1,000 or more for those interested in joining our syndicates.

Current Syndicates:

Albion according to the Italians

Spring 2019 will be one of English Touring Opera’s grandest to date, and our syndicate of generous individuals is forming around new productions of two Italian operas set on our shores: Verdi’s Macbeth, and most importantly the first professional production of Rossini’s Elisabetta, regina d’Inghilterra to be staged in England since 1818.

Our syndicates are comprised of opera enthusiasts from around the UK, whose support helps ETO continue to tour rare works alongside those that are well-loved. Many donate £1,000 or more towards supporting certain roles, endowing chairs in our orchestra or covering production costs, but donations of any amount are greatly appreciated, and go a long way in bringing opera to parts of the country that might otherwise go without professional, live music on this scale.
