Support us

We have exciting plans for the coming seasons. If you would like to keep in touch with our plans by joining our email  list, become a member/ supporter, or become actively involved in NSO click on our Contact page.

  • Opera is the most expensive of all art forms, involving all the costs of a theatre production combined with all the costs of a musical production. We control our expenses very carefully and our administration is done on a voluntary basis, so our productions deliver very good value for money. Even so, ticket sales come nowhere near covering costs. We are grateful to all who give us invaluable financial support.
  • We invite individuals to support NSO by making a donation on a per production or annual basis. This could involve supporting one particular aspect of our work e.g. an educational workshop, an individual soloist, an orchestral player, a special costume, prop or lighting effect.
  • Supporters receive priority news of events, and receive various benefits, including opportunities to attend social functions and special events.
  • Support need not mean just financial support of course: contact us if you would like to explore other ways in which you might be involved and support our projects.

    NSO is supported by
    • John Lewis & Partners
    • The Behrens Foundation
