Interim Season: Owen Wingrave
Opera Cultural Heroine of 2020
“Things looked bleak for opera in the first months of lockdown . . . but for Wasf Kani, the restrictions were just a challenge. She sprung into action the moment the rules allowed her some leeway and commissioned friends like Bryn Terfel and Simon Keenlyside to stream online concerts from their homes. For sheer resourceful creativity, no other company can match it.”
Beating the pandemic: supporting staff & artists
The arts are what makes life worth living. In these unparalleled, unexpected times, every arts organisation is fighting for its life.
Our goal is to keep the artistic community of Grange Park Opera intact and we have neither government funding nor reserves. Having lost all ticket income, we are asking ticket buyers to consider donating the price of their tickets rather than requesting a credit note or refund.
Just as you brought about the miracle of building the Theatre in the Woods, we hope you will again pull with us.
Your donation is hugely appreciated and will hail a bright new day.
Thank you for being part of the Grange Park Opera family.
The Pandemicists will be celebrated in print and in person. Who knows when?
A gift to keep forever – a momento of not only a birthday but these quiet Lost Months.
100% of donations will be distributed to artists and technicians in need.
Why not surprise someone with Joseph Calleja singing for their birthday? Or Simon Keenlyside, or Go Compare’s Wynne Evans, or soprano Ailish Tynan, or CEO Wasfi? And there are more.
