Thank you to our donors

Our donors are a foundational part of the Opera House. When you make a tax-deductible gift, you help to make the Opera House Everyone’s House. Private funding expands our most inclusive and socially impactful programs, both onsite and online, opening up this iconic place to all members of the community.

As a not-for-profit entity that self-funds the vast majority of its operating revenue, the Opera House depends on the generosity of our supporters. With the help of our donors, we can reach new and diverse audiences and artists, achieving our ambition to make the Opera House a place where everyone feels welcome.

We can’t do it without you.

Thank you.

Our donors for the financial year 2022-2023 are recognised here
