Wagner Appeal

Please help us to keep Wagner’s operas alive

The Wagner Appeal enables The Royal Opera to keep Wagner’s legacy alive for future generations through inspiring productions, created and performed by the world’s leading artists. Your support underpins every aspect of our performances, from language coaching through to lighting the stage. For example, a gift of £433 could allow the Music Library to purchase the new Schott Urtext edition vocal scores for all Wagner’s operas. This will help music staff prepare singers for roles such as Tristan, the Dutchman and Tannhäuser, and give conductors the best rehearsal and performance experience.


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 Covent Garden 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.
