In the last year, we have been supported by several key organisations here in Northern Ireland, including the Hastings Hotel Group, the Titanic Quarter and the Belfast Harbour Commission. Financial and in-kind support from these companies helps us to present world-class opera to audiences, bringing international stars of the calibre of Sebastian Catana and Nadine Koutcher to the Belfast stage.
Corporate support also means we have funds or facilities to develop outreach projects, educational events for children and training for the up-and-coming opera singers in our opera studio. This helps to make opera accessible to all, right across Northern Ireland.
For you as an organisation, supporting Northern Ireland Opera makes sense, with benefits including access to private events, charity gala evenings, priority seats for our major shows and branding alignment. There are multiple CSR opportunities in helping us bring opera to new audiences, including sponsoring a children’s opera, which will tour across NI to schools and small venues and by supporting our outreach work to schools, charities and low income groups. For example, during the week preceding Rigoletto we held 21 events in which 1200 participants engaged with us from over 50 charities, schools and community organisations.
If you are interested in discussing how you might help us make opera accessible to all here in Northern Ireland, please get in touch. We work creatively with each of our corporate partners to ensure we come up with a sponsorship package that works for you.

‘I would like to come back to the opera house. I really enjoyed the workshop. It challenged my views on opera and made me want to see the opera itself.’
