WOW, we did it again! Our first target of £5,000 has been reached.
Many thanks to you all for helping us reach this first milestone! It really means a lot to us!
Let's try to make it even better, and aim for the £7,000 mark, and equal the result of the last two years.
Why a new target?
Apart from the excitement of a new challenge, there's the fact that creating new opera needs all the support we can get.
As we went all-or-none, we started with a safe and reachable target of £ 5,000, but the total cost of the production is £70000, so we can definitely use your help in getting closer to that, and complement other private and public funding we have secured already. But we still have some way to go to cover all costs, so the more we can raise, the better we can show other potential funding partners the importance of the movement we have created and the enthusiasm that projects like this can generate.
And did we mention that the rewards for backers are still there?
What happens from here?
The additional funding from this new target will be allocated in the same way as the money that has been pledged so far, going towards guaranteeing fair fees to all the amazing young talents who are already enrolled in this project.
Many thanks again for your invaluable support - long live young opera. And see you all in February!
