Support our work

Join our story

We create brand-new works of opera, and in so doing we support artists’ (often early-stage) careers, and generate enthusiasm for new opera in communities across the north of England.

Doing all this isn't easy and it isn't cheap - but you would be surprised how far we are able to stretch our budgets. So, we depend on the generosity of public sector grants, private foundations, corporate sponsors, and most importantly: individual gifts.

Friends of the Company

Please consider making a small monthly donation (£2 or $2.50) to Radius Opera. This is a very effective way to help us, which we hope is also very affordable for you - and being a Friend of Radius Opera comes with some perks:

  • Friends can access locked content via Patreon and our own website: for example, backstage photos, interviews with cast and creative team...
  • Where possible, Friends will also receive early booking and discounted tickets (subject to venue restrictions).
  • Friends receive an insider ebulletin about our current production's development, seeing directly how your contribution is helping us.

Patrons of the Company

If you are willing to regularly donate a little more (£12 or $15) to us, then we will consider you to be a Patron of Radius Opera, with the following benefits in addition to those enjoyed by Friends:

  • Patrons are named (unless anonymous) and recognised in our programmes and other production materials.
  • Patrons are invited to attend dress rehearsals
  • Patrons are invited back-stage at performances to meet the cast
  • Patrons are invited to a VIP reception at the first performance of a production run, providing a chance to meet the composer, librettist, director, designer, and other members of the creative team.
