Opera is arguably the absolute artistic expression, rich in heritage with narratives that are still powerfully relevant today. Combining voice, music, movement and visual art, it uniquely binds talent and craftsmanship. Opera is a cultural pinnacle of human creativity that fires our senses like no other form of storytelling.
Making it happen is no mean feat!
WNO Production Support is a way for you to get right up close to WNO and experience the highs and lows of a production coming together. With insights from the casts and creative teams, special events, lectures, and exclusive backstage access, you will follow a production from beginning to end. A truly unique experience!
This season we are launching two new ways for you to get involved:
The Pelléas and Mélisande Circle supports a new production of Debussy’s 20th Century masterpiece, directed by David Pountney and conducted by Lothar Koenigs, in Summer 2015.
The New Commissions Group supports the development of two completely new operas Figaro gets a Divorce by Elena Langer with libretto by David Pountney and In Parenthesis by Iain Bell.
There are also opportunities for involvement with the final year of the Bel Canto Syndicate – supporting I Puritani and Orlando.
A great adventure awaits!
