Season Appeal

Before the curtain goes up on the new Season, there’s a huge amount of work to be done behind the scenes. From Chorus members’ shoes being polished and repaired in the Opera Shoe Room to training for teachers to help them inspire a generation of students with a passion for the arts, the Royal Opera House is a hive of activity.

Help support our work for the exciting Season ahead by making a contribution today.

  • £7 could provide five pots of polish to clean and shine the Royal Opera House Chorus’s shoes.
  • £33 could pay for bowings to be added to a violin part.
  • £193 could pay for our 36 pairs of pinking shears to be sharpened.
  • £430 could provide a projector bulb to run the opera surtitles for a year.
  • £1,016 could provide a teacher with the skills and resources to inspire their class with creative activities throughout the year.

Everybody has a part to play: play yours today.

e.g. £7, £33, £193 or other

If you pay tax you can help us even more at no extra cost. You can give us an extra 25 pence for every pound of your donation, merely by ticking this Gift Aid declaration.

Please treat as Gift Aid donations all qualifying gifts of money made today, in the past four years and in the future. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 I give. I will notify The Royal Opera House Foundation if I want to cancel this declaration, change my name or home address or no longer pay sufficient tax on my income and/or capital gains.

It is also possible to make a donation by phone.
