An Opera in Your Name

An opera in your name

a truly unique way to support an Opera Odyssey

With more than 350 operas deemed worthy of discussion in our TV/DVD series, within the context of how they help us illustrate the development of the art form, we are very pleased to launch ‘An Opera in Your Name’.  Through a comparatively modest contribution, you can nominate one of our opera segments to be named in your or a loved one’s honour celebrating your or their love of opera. The name may be a personal pleasure, in honour of loved ones, or in memoriam of a family member.  With your consent, the names will also be featured on this website.

You will receive a certificate of appreciation for supporting an opera in the series, a box-set of the series DVDs (almost 40 hours of viewing), and a lifetime 12% discount in the Opera Odyssey online shop being launched in October. [Please note that the DVD collection will not be available until 2021 as the series is being filmed in 2020].

An opera in your name

Supporting an Opera Odyssey through 'An Opera in Your Name' will be operated on a first come, first served basis. You will not be asked for any payment until your choice of opera has been confirmed. You will then have a choice of making a single payment, or two equal instalments. Only 353 operas are available to support in this way.

Subscription

€345

This vital avenue of support for the Opera Odyssey project at this crucial time in its production, allows us to purchase reproduction and music rights, critical to the success of the series.  In addition, it permits us to book concert halls for the gala concerts, as considerable deposits are required to do so. It also facilitates the opera auditions being held in Dublin in January, to select the singers who will record the arias for the series and perform in our concerts.  Your support is indispensable and very meaningful.

An Opera In Your Name

When looking for the name of your favoured opera, please be aware that it may not be listed here in its English version.
