Be a part of this unique company by joining our Friends. 


At Gothic Opera we stage rarely-heard operas to a very high standard. We are an open-minded, ambitious and experimental company. We endeavour to include world or UK premieres in much of our programming, from newly-discovered nineteenth century works to new commissions. We perform in small and unintimidating venues, oozing with gothic atmosphere.


Times are very hard for the arts in the UK at present. Gothic Opera is dependent on the support of generous donors, trusts and foundations to enable our important work. We are grateful for the support of our Friends, who make regular contributions by standing order. Please consider joining the Friends of Gothic Opera so that we can continue to plan for forthcoming seasons, providing paid work for artists, creatives and performing arts professionals (often in the early part of their careers), and bringing forgotten and neglected work to a wider audience. 

Benefits of joining our Friends include:


  • helping to strengthen the company’s development as we grow

  • nurturing the careers of singers and other artists and music professionals

  • supporting Gothic Opera's work bringing opera to a wider audience.

All Friends are entitled to priority booking. Shelley Friends receive a free ticket allowance of one pair per year, and Walpole Friends two pairs per year. We offer four levels of membership:

  • Radcliffe Friends: £50 - £149 per year

  • Stoker Friends: £150 - £249 per year .

  • Shelley Friends: £250 - £499 per year

  • Walpole Friends: £500 or over per year

Thank you very much for your support!
