Why support us?
Every shoe, sequin, orchestral part and lighting gel comes at a price. And without skilled footwear supervisors, workroom managers, armourers, music librarians, stage managers and technicians, no production would reach the stage. That's why the £26 million you contribute each year, through donations small and large, is so important.
Whenever you make a gift to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden Foundation, become a Friend or Patron or leave a gift in your will, you play a crucial role in creating extraordinary performances, outstanding craftsmanship and inspiring learning and participation projects.
How to support us
Make a donation
The COVID-19 global crisis has had an immediate and serious financial impact for us – we have lost £3 in every £5 of our income. Your help is urgently needed to keep the Royal Opera House community together and sustain our community of world-class dancers, singers, musicians, craftspeople and other backstage staff through these challenging times. Your generosity is truly appreciated and brings us closer to welcoming you back through our doors.
