Give to Opera on the Avalon

Some stories beg to be told. A true storyteller transports us to another place and time, engages our intellect and imagination, and touches us on a deep emotional level. Opera on the Avalon continues to bring compelling stories to life through the magic of the singing voice: the most powerful, authentic, and expressive instrument of all. We are committed to presenting familiar favourites that have stood the test of time, modern works receiving critical acclaim, and new tellings of our own history.

Bringing together the talent, skill, and labor required to present professional productions of this scale requires exceptional support. As a supporter of Opera on the Avalon, your support and investment in our season is a reminder of the primary reason for the inherent value of the creative industries: life-enhancing, entertaining, and defining of our personal, provincial, and national identities. Investing in Opera on the Avalon is an investment in the quality of life for the people who live and work in our province. We bring together our own talent and some of the world’s most exciting professionals. Opera on the Avalon is committed to the business of the arts, stressing the integral purpose of culture along with the social, educational and economic benefits to our community at large.
