Posted October 07, 2019 06:33:54Opera, the world’s leading global music and entertainment service, will open an online fundraiser for its Opera Australia operations on Tuesday, October 10, the company said.
The opera house will host a “Live Opera Fundraiser” that will feature live performances, free tickets, giveaways, and an opportunity to meet the company’s management team.
Opera Australia’s website said it was the first time it had ever raised a significant amount of money through the Live Opera Fundraising initiative.
“We’re looking forward to hosting the live Opera Fundraise on Tuesday to raise the funds necessary for Opera Australia to grow its global operations and support our local communities,” the company told ABC News in a statement.
Operas chief executive Ian MacFarlane told a Sydney Opera House event in August that the company had raised $1 million via the fund.
“It’s the first live Opera fundraiser, so there’s a lot of work to be done to ensure that this kind of fundraising happens at the right time and the right place,” he said.
