Become a sponsor of Opera Worcester 2018-11-01T10:21:45+00:00

Opera Worcester (formerly Great Witley Operatic Society) is once again offering sponsorship packages for its 2018-2019 season. For full details of the packages on offer, please see below.

Last year, this 65-year old established local company changed its name to Opera Worcester to reflect its commitment to providing opportunities for local singers and aspiring young professionals, and to bring live opera back to Worcester and the surrounding area.

This is a bold new venture for the company and any support we can attract is very important in enabling us to realise our ambitions.

In the past three years, promising young professional singers have joined us to undertake roles, in some cases enabling them to experience singing opera for the very first time. Our productions have also provided local talented singers and instrumentalists with new challenges that they might not otherwise have the chance to tackle.
