Behind every great artist, there is a great Patron.
Patrons of Opera Australia contribute through our annual giving program to help us present excellent opera, develop contemporary stories, perform year-round across Australia, and inspire new audiences through our Oz Opera regional touring and schools programs.
By becoming a Patron of Opera Australia you are investing in the company, demonstrating your passion for the artform and joining our family. We thank you for your contribution and in recognition of your support offer:

  • Acknowledgement in all Opera Australia programs, website and annual report. Ambassador, Artist, Governor and Benefactor Patrons are also acknowledged on the Opera Australia Patron banner displayed in the theatre foyer;
