Production Support

Supporting quality on the stage

Garsington Opera crafts productions of great artistic quality in a setting of extraordinary natural beauty. Performances take place in the spectacular Opera Pavilion, which sits within the rolling landscape of the Chiltern Hills.

Each production requires not only its dedicated team of director, designer and conductor but a full set, lighting, costumes, orchestra, and of course the singers – soloists and often a chorus. Support for individual productions and specific roles on and off the stage as well as in the orchestra pit, form an essential part of our fundraising strategy.

Production Syndicates

Over recent years, individuals have generously elected to support a particular production in the season. Syndicate members are invited to follow the production they are supporting in rehearsal, see behind-the-scenes and meet some of the leading singers and members of the artistic team.

Opportunities start at £5,000 (suggested donation). If you are interested in joining a Production Syndicate please contact Bryony Benstead, Head of Philanthropy, or 01494 376037.



“It has been an absolute joy to have been a small part of such a forward-looking company. We were a bit unsure of our names being mentioned, but every time I heard the applause, I just thought, we have made so many people happy. That was what we set out to do. I also hope it might inspire others to do something similar next year.”
