Support the work of Northern Ireland's national opera company

You can help us

Help us use the power of opera to bring people together, to offer unmatched entertainment and escapism, and to tell universal stories. Northern Ireland’s rich history of song, music and storytelling are the foundations which fuel our ambition to draw communities together to experience the total artform of opera presented through a contemporary Northern Irish voice, and the emotional and social benefits that it can bring.


How we could spend your donations

Be part of our story

We are a small company with titan-ambitions, we take an egalitarian approach to opening up the artform of opera and we inspire the art of the possible. From salon-scale work which we take into community spaces, pubs and studio theatres, through to our annual full-scale operas accompanied by the 40-piece Ulster Orchestra, we use our resources to tell big stories and create memorable performance experiences which raise the aspirations of audiences and build a sense of pride in place, contributing to a rich cultural life.
