Support Our Operatic Future

We are now raising funds for our 2018 mainstage opera production – our ninth – as the company moves into a new phase of growth, incorporating concert series’, oratorio and plans for touring in addition to our mainstage operas.

2018 marks an exciting period of growth for Operantics, presenting a more varied program of works including oratorio and more intimate recitals and plans for touring alongside our mainstage productions.

So far, we have achieved our operatic successes without any form of private or government funding, and we are now seeking support in order to enable us to grow and create even better and more diverse productions.

It's A Mystery...

We have some exciting plans... but we're not ready to reveal them just yet! We can tell you that our 2018 main stage production will be as engaging and innovative as anything we've produced so far. 

Our mystery production will be presented October-November this year in Sydney, with the potential of taking the opera to regional NSW centres should our secondary funding goal be reached.

We will be holding fundraising events and concerts throughout the year in the lead up to our mainstage production, filled with clues for our audiences before the ‘big reveal’. So come along and test your opera trivia, we’re excited to share the journey with you all!

All About The Money

We are accepting donations for this project through the Australian Cultural Fund, and all donations over $1 are tax-deductible. Our fundraising goal for this campaign is $10,000, but this will cover less than a third of our overall production costs (opera is expensive!) and any donations we receive beyond our initial goal will be gratefully received and enable us to make an even better production.

What will this money be used for, you ask? Donations received through the Australian Cultural Fund will be used toward the costs of venue hire, our orchestra, props, sets, costuming and publicity. We'll be pursuing additional avenues of support to make up the difference and to pay our artists and creatives.

Be a Patron

Donors will be among the first of our patrons to learn what our mystery production will be, and be thanked on our website and programs throughout the year. By contributing to this project, you will be ensuring the future of Operantics and helping us to continue to contribute to Sydney’s artistic landscape and future.
