A message from OA supporter and volunteer Anna Guthrie.
Will you make a gift to Opera Atelier today and have its impact doubled? Anyone who knows our beloved co-artistic directors Marshall and Jeannette knows that when they dream, they dream big. And the result of that inspiration and passion is evident each time you sit in the audience of an Opera Atelier production. It will take time and the great efforts of many people, but I hope we shall turn the company’s dreams into reality. Please join with me and my friends and colleagues at Opera Atelier – my “second family” – in bringing the delights of historically informed operas to many more people.
I have pledged to match every gift that the company receives before December 31, 2013 dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000.
Annual Fundraising: Support the Magic of Opera Atelier
Do you find yourself carried away by Opera Atelier’s productions – the glorious music, the beautiful dancing, the splendour of the sets and costumes? Great ballet and opera has the power to transport us to a place where we forget about the world around us. The power and beauty of a great production is made possible because of the commitment of loyal patrons like you. Ticket-buyers are essential to Opera Atelier’s success, however, money raised from ticket sales covers only 31% of the cost of our productions. Opera Atelier relies on the additional support of generous donors to help make our productions possible.
Charitable contributions allow us to present our productions at the highest possible quality, bringing the greatest musical dramatic works of the 17th and 18th centuries to life. Donations also help to fund our education, outreach and artist training programs, which are essential to the future of our company and to the development of Canadian artists. We thank our donors with invitations to join us at rehearsals as well as educational and social events. We also provide a tax receipt for the full amount of your contribution.
Please join us!
“From modest beginnings, Pynkoski and Zingg have unswervingly guided Opera Atelier to maturity as one of the world’s pre-eminent producers of early opera.”
