Founders Circle

Join Irish National Opera’s Founders Circle

Be Part of Irish Opera History!

We’re ambitious, bold and new. In our first year, we will present seven operas, five of them new productions, and tour to thirteen venues in Ireland as well as to London’s Barbican Centre. We will collaborate with Irish artists and opera stars who have held global audiences spellbound.

We will appear in major festivals, including the Galway International Arts Festival and Dublin Theatre Festival. This is a renaissance of opera in Ireland and you can be part of our success story.

Join the Founders Circle by making a once-off contribution of €1,000 and your name will forever be associated with the founding of Irish National Opera. We will acknowledge members of our Founders Circle in perpetuity. If you wish, you may also choose to make a Founders Circle contribution in someone else’s name(s) and, if you prefer, you can make a contribution anonymously.

This is your chance to play a part in the history of Irish opera.
