Birmingham Opera Company needs your support. You can donate from £1 knowing that you're supporting amazing work. Next up the greatest British opera- Dido & Aeneas by Henry Purcell in March 2016.

Each year we inspire thousands, presenting operatic masterpieces in non theatre spaces - combining volunteers’ participation and free training with the highest artistic values, artist development, free taster events across the city and affordable ticket prices.

We'll be posting short videos which give you a taste of the company's work from volunteers' stories to clips of our large scale, internationally acclaimed and award winning productions. 

Please donate now if you can and please share this appeal to five others you know.
