Play your part in the future of opera - help us deliver artistic, personal and social change. 


Going for Gold Appeal

Since 1987, Birmingham Opera Company has been making world-class opera, all in our home city of Birmingham. Now, we are Going for Gold. 

In 2021, we turn our eyes to a new urban development - our biggest challenge yet - to place opera at its beating heart, as it takes its first breath.

Donate to the Going for Gold appeal 

For a limited time only, your donation will be matched by the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation (UK).

Your donation will: 

  • Create world-class opera in Birmingham
  • Inspire thousands with opera on their doorsteps at over 80 year-round performances and events.
  • Help us invite, mentor and provide training to volunteers - for many a life-changing experience.
  • Train outstanding ethnically and socially diverse professional singers so opera speaks to the broadest possible audience. 

Alternatively you can make a donation (one-off or set up a regular payment) directly through our website.
