CAN YOU HELP?
We have now launched our crucial Crowdfunding campaign to help fund our summer open-air production of Puccini’s La Boheme, after a years absence due to the pandemic. Our mission is to bring opera to Hoghton Tower – Nr Preston, Astley Park – Chorley, and Ordsall Hall – Salford.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
We have delivered past productions by offering programme sponsorship to local businesses and relying on ticket sales, seeking to keep ticket costs low by keeping our numbers of cast members and creatives to a minimum, borrowing set furniture and resources from local people. Puccini’s La Boheme has a larger cast, and although we intend to keep our creative spirits when it comes to borrowing set, our main priority is to cover artists fee, to offer that much needed security after such an uncertain year.
Our mission is to make opera accessible to our local communities, where we can inspire our passion for opera, theatre, music and art into all generations
