Ways to support

Lalla roukh

There are many ways to give. Donors are offered a variety of benefits and additional opportunities that will enhance their experience. The festival relies on generous supporters – people like you – who are passionate about opera.

You can support a chosen artist’s journey, helping to put their career on a firmer footing. It’s a wonderfully personal and practical way to get involved in the career of a performer, conductor or director.

Maestro Level (Support - €10,000)

The Maestro level provides support for the most essential artists at the festival, our conductors, directors, and mainstage stars. Our Maestro benefactors ensure we can attract the talent to make the festival an artistic voyage each year.

Principale Level (Support - €5,000)

At Principale level our benefactors can support emerging onstage talent or a more established singer. Opera is a career that demands intense focus and dedication, and it is encouraging for performers to know that they have support in the most practical way.

Carve your name in history and become part of the fabric of the National Opera House. You can make a dedication in your own name, your family’s, a friend, or that of a loved one. As well as a plaque on your seat, your name will be entered on a donor scroll located in the foyer of the National Opera House. A lasting tribute.
