Donate: L’Orfeo

We are currently raising funds for the UK and European premiere of our new production of Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo. This pioneering new staging, developed by our artistic director Thomas Guthrie while resident at Princeton University USA last year, is a collaboration with I Fagiolini (dir Robert Hollingworth), 28 musicians, and singer-operated puppets and masks. It will be performed at the York Early Music Festival and in London’s wonderful LSO St Luke’s in Old Street. 

The project includes a fantastic community outreach programme to introduce the story and Monteverdi’s music to children and adults with special education needs and disabilities. It includes a special, abridged and narrated ‘relaxed performance’ in London, where the audience is free to move about, make noise, leave and interact in any way they are comfortable.


Support the puppets:

£5,000 buys a full puppet for the production

£1,000 buys a head, of which there are 4: Messaggiera, Speranza, Musica, Musa. 

£500 a mask for singers, of which there are 16 

  • Simply enter the relevant amount, mark it as a ‘one-off’ donation, and then tick the Gift Aid box if you can.

Support the outreach and relaxed performance:

£6,700 covers the cost of making the relaxed performance affordable to adults, children and families with SEND needs, or for people who have never experienced opera before. 

£4,300 covers the cost of developing and running our outreach programme
