Opera is an inspired charity fundraising idea
Opera is the perfect entertainment for a charity fundraising event and London Festival Opera has been the vehicle to help raise many hundreds of thousands of pounds for some of the world’s leading charities. The company has a significant artistic reputation and many charities have engaged us to create a special event to attract both sponsorship and raise funds from ticket sales. Charities has benefitted from the company history and reputation of the company in promoting their events and featured the companies marketing material to assist in promoting a charity fundraising event. We can help make your charity fundraising event achieve its goals.
We offer a wide range of options from a highlight performance in costume from an opera such as ‘Carmen’, ‘Madame Butterfly’, ‘The Magic Flute’ or ‘La Traviata’. Alternatively, if your event is centred around a dinner, we can present a ‘cabaret’ style performance dovetailing the courses of the meal with stunning music. There are many options to choose from and we would be delighted to put together a programme which will perfectly complement and enhance your fundraising event.
Our opera singers can appear in glamorous modern dress or beautiful period evening dress to create an added visual impact, which works particularly well in an historic setting. Accompaniment can be solo piano, an instrumental ensemble, full orchestra or recorded orchestral backing tracks.
Opera is about passion and drama, but there are also many lighter moments: Carmen can serenade the guest of honour and give them flowers as she does in the celebrated ‘Habanera’ and Figaro, ‘The Barber of Seville’ and interact with the audience in his famous aria.
A ‘Surprise Start’ where the singers appear to be waiters or fellow guests, who burst into song to the amazement of the audience can be a perfect start to a charity fundraising event. Please see our page on ‘Singing Waiters’ for more details.
