Creation Investment Fund

Support innovation in the arts. The Creation Investment Fund celebrates the leadership of Opera on the Avalon in turning our history and stories into art.


The cost of creating a new opera is significant. Through our creation investment fund, we solicit funds to help develop new Canadian opera that is innovative groundbreaking and resonant for all.  

The first opera in this fund was the critically acclaimed Ours, and new productions are programmed every three to four years, including our recent production of Shanawdithit in May 2019.
