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 cannot reach, and allowing us to build towards our long-term environmental dreams.
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.
Whether a specific project, area of production (costume, arrangement), an individual, or even a particular region - please let us know if you would like your support to go towards a specific element of our work.
We will ring-fence your support and use it only for those projects.
As well as our various programmes year round, we offer individual sponsorship opportunities for both our Young Artists and our principal singers.
Our aim is to bring top quality opera to as many different places as possible.
We perform at all manner of venues, from theatres and manor houses, to gardens, front rooms, and private functions. If you would be interested in hosting a show, please take a look at what is on offer and get in touch.
As a small arts charity, it is our audience who make our tour possible, especially when it comes to finding beds for our performers anywhere and everywhere around the UK. Please get in touch if you have a spare bed available.
Even if you don't think you have anything to give, word of mouth is what lets people know we exist - it's how we build our audience and our national profile, how we find new venues and supporters all around the UK. If you think you know anyone who might be interested in our work, bring them along, or send them a link.
We are also always delighted to meet our audiences after a show, so feel free to come and find us, and have a chat - whenever, wherever.
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.
