Wagner Appeal

"Nothing is as exciting nor challenging in the world of opera as to engage with the works of Richard Wagner. For a world-class opera house, how we perform Wagner's works is a real measure of our quality. It is always extraordinary for our artists, staff and audience when we perform Wagner, and there is no half-heartedness. It is all or nothing.”

Kasper Holten, Director of Opera

Please help us to keep Wagner’s operas alive

Staging a Wagner opera is a huge undertaking, requiring lengthy rehearsals and a wealth of scenery and costumes, and so the generosity of committed Wagner enthusiasts is essential in underpinning every revival and new production.


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.
