Thanks so much to everyone who donated to our Big Give campaign! We made it to our £6000 target!
That’s brilliant news… we’ll be bringing Puccini’s Il Tabarro to our SmallStages venues next Autumn!
For one week only between December 3rd 2019 and December 10th 2019
One Donation – Double the Impact
This year, MWO took part in the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge, a UK wide campaign to encourage giving to charities by doubling donations. For every pound given, we doubled the donation to £2.
We have £3000 in our ‘matching pot’, thanks to a very generous donor and doubled that with your help!
We’ll use the money to support our SmallStages 2020 tour, bringing live opera to small theatres and community halls across Wales and the Borders.
See our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign page
And next year’s SmallStages show is our biggest yet – Puccini’s passionate late masterpiece Il tabarro – so we really are bringing grand opera to great little venues. We already have some of the money we need for the tour from the Arts Council of Wales Lottery and Garfield Weston Foundation but we want help to match that, including from your donations.
If you can help MWO keep opera live and local then please donate. If you can give us £2 then we can turn that into £4, £10 into £20. And your money really will make a difference – £175 pays a violinist for one show, £15 pays for a copy of the score – every little helps and we’re hugely grateful for the support our audiences give in helping to keep MWO’s tours on the road.
So please save the dates December 3-10 2019 and watch out for updates on our website and social media. It’s easy to give using the Big Give button on our website and your donations will make double the difference.
