Sponsorship Proposal 2020
Gothic Opera is a female-led opera company specialising in the rich canon of neglected works that take their inspiration from Gothic fiction. Our mission is to appeal to regular opera-goers who are attracted by unusual repertoire, as well as to audiences with little experience of opera. We open our work to community groups and have a strong online presence. Our work reduces nervousness and uncertainty around opera attendance.
The eclectic crowds at our sold-out performances of our inaugural production, Der Vampyr, included a high proportion of people under 35, many of whom reported to be first time opera goers. Der Vampyr also received a nomination for an Off-West End Award in the Best Opera category. We appeared on In Tune on BBC Radio 3, and featured in prestigious publications including Elle UK and Opera Now.
By sponsoring us, you will
reach a large and diverse audience in London and online
