The Opera Club

Innovative Opera for All

Welcome to The Opera Club, a place for opera lovers in Christchurch and the wider Canterbury region who wish to share their passion for genre.

The objectives of the Club are to help develop opera singers, provide performance opportunities, host concerts, contribute to local events including corporate, local government and sporting events, as well as providing entertainment at opening ceremonies and festive occasions.

If you’re a performer, supporter or follower of opera, we'd love to have you on board.  Feel free to explore the rest of the site for ways in which you can get involved with opera in Canterbury.

The Opera Club is committed to funding itself through membership fees, performance fees, and ticket sales where possible.  However, there are many costs such as general administration and the coaching and development of singers that do not relate directly to these activities.  If you would like to make a financial contribution to The Opera Club, you can do so in two ways.

Event Sponsorship

Opportunities often exist for sponsorship of individual concerts, one act operas, and other events that The Opera Club holds throughout the year.  Anyone sponsoring one of these events would ‘own’ that event, thereby generating significant exposure to an organisation of their choice.   Contact us here if this option interests you or if you’d like to find out more information

General Donation

All donations to The Opera Club are gratefully accepted and go toward the ongoing development of not only The Opera Club but opera as a whole in Christchurch and the wider Canterbury region.  Contact us through this form if you would like to contribute in this way.
