Opera Anywhere are very grateful to our many sponsors and supporters who helped us in the past to keep us touring. We are now looking for several sponsors to help us with some upcoming projects that will have considerable impact and are sure to gain wide publicity in Oxfordshire and beyond.
Our main project for 2019 will be to create a new opera festival in the Cotswolds at Cokethorpe School, near Witney, Oxfordshire.
Opera Anywhere have successfully developed music and opera festivals in Sunningwell (2000 to 2015) and at the Waterperry Gardens Amphitheatre (2014 to 2018) but now have the opportunity to work with Cokethorpe to develop productions and performances throughout the numerous, beautiful and inspiring surroundings that the school provides.
Our plans include matinee and evening performances of accessible fully staged opera with interval dining options in the wonderful, grassy surroundings. A £10,000 donation would ensure we could embark on creating the festival that should attract considerable publicity and provide opportunities for exclusive corporate entertainment in addition to offering a wide range of performances to the public. A substantial portion of the £10,000 would be invested in a temporary roof structure that would ensure audience protection from whatever the weather could throw at us.
Opera Anywhere continue to plan further community performances of our opera productions and also our ‘Amahl & The Night Visitors’ at Christmas, we need to raise £25,000 to help fund an ambitious touring programme that includes schools and youth projects across the UK.
Our third but probably most important challenge is to raise funds for a permanent General Manager, we need to raise £25,000 in order to ensure consistent leadership and effort in order to continue to build our wonderful little opera company! If you think you can help we’d be delighted to hear from you! Please call Mike on 01865 735910 or email.
