Please let us know if you would like your support to go towards a specific area of our work - our outreach, our operas, our opera evenings, our other concerts, or even a specific geographical region of our tour. We will ring-fence your support and use it only for those projects.
Wildflower Patrons support young singers to have invaluable performing experience with Wild Arts. You will be invited to attend masterclasses given by our patron (Roderick WIlliams OBE) or by other eminent artists and coaches who support Wild Arts in its day to day life. You'll also receive an invitation to the after-show party and all the benefits enjoyed by Dragonfly Friends.
Meadow Patrons have the chance to be a fly on the wall at our singer auditions in London, as well as watching masterclasses, an invitation to the after-show party, and all the other benefits enjoyed by Friends and Wildflower Patrons.
Woodland Patrons are invited to the initial concept presentation by the director and designer - a key moment in the creation of each production, as well as being a fly on the wall at our singer auditions in London, watching masterclasses, meeting the cast and company at the after-show party, and all the other benefits enjoyed by Meadow Patrons.
Our Ocean Patrons are our core supporters, enabling brilliant new productions of opera that speak to everyone, giving opportunities to talented young performers, bringing top quality opera to places other companies can't reach, and allowing us to build towards our long-term dream of building the first truly sustainable concert hall and opera house.
Ocean Patrons enjoy all the benefits listed above, plus a champagne dinner with the core Wild Arts team hosted at one of our amazing venues.

From the initial conception in the director’s mind many months before the first rehearsal, through the collaboration with designer and music director, rehearsals with singers, and finally with the full ensemble, the whole process will be made possible by your support.
Production sponsors will be invited to singer auditions and the initial presentation by the stage director in the autumn, the model box showing by the designer in the spring, coaching sessions by our honorary patrons, and rehearsals in May and June.
You can sponsor any number of costumes at £500 per costume. You will receive a unique drawing of the costume, signed by the designer.

Our productions rely on new realisations for just seven instruments, bringing the colours of each instrument vividly to life and showcasing the talent of our chamber musicians. You will receive your own signed copy of the arrangement.
Supporting a principal soloist means you are enabling the very core of what we do, supporting the incredibly talented soloists who we work with to further their skill, hone their stagecraft, and develop as an artist, giving the audience the most thrilling evening.
The success of each performance rests on the quality of each and every player, and we pride ourselves on the quality of our ensemble.
By supporting a ‘cover’ singer, you are enabling them to learn the role, attend rehearsals, learn from and be mentored by the established artists who they are shadowing, perform in a young artist showcase to which we will invite industry professionals, and be ready to save the day and go on to perform the role in the actual performance.
They will also be coached by our patron Roderick Williams OBE, one of the world’s most eminent baritones.
An opera production relies on a range of key skills and knowledge. Carpenters, costume experts, stage managers, writers, linguists and of course musicians including the repetiteur, who plays the whole orchestral score on the piano for rehearsals and also coaches the singers.
From 2023, Wild Arts will give opportunities for young people to shadow & learn from the top professionals. Please get in touch with your personal area of interest.
£650 - £1,350
Our education plans and environmental ideals are not so different. Everything in our world lives and grows, and we must feed and nurture our art for it to survive. That means working with children, supporting young artists and creatives, and inspiring and giving opportunities to the people who will sustain the arts in the future.
A tree is only as strong as its roots.
Unless you ask us to ring-fence it for something specific and special to you, we will spend half our sponsors' funds on developing talent and bringing opera and music to young people.
