Welsh National Opera was born of the people for the people. The same is true of WNO Friends, which was founded over 50 years ago by some of our most committed and enlightened supporters. Understanding the challenges involved in staging great opera, they set up a new charity to raise funds to support WNO.
WNO Friends believe that love and passion make great things happen. What we do helps to stage and share great opera with as many people as possible. By becoming a Friend you will be actively joining us on our mission to inspire a new generation of opera lovers.
