WNO Britten Group

Over the next two years WNO will stage two new productions of operas by Benjamin Britten beginning with Death in Venice  in March 2024, directed by Olivia Fuchs.

The second opera, to be performed in May 2025 and conducted by Tomáš Hanus, will be announced in early 2024.

There is a significant financial investment in staging and touring these operas. With this in mind, we have formed a Britten Group with the aim of raising at least £100,000 towards the production costs. We would love you to join us in staging these interesting and challenging works.

To become part of the Britten Group, we are seeking donations of £3,500 and above for each production or £6,000 to cover both (which can be made over three financial years). There are also opportunities for role support.

If you are interested and would like to join the Britten Group or would like further information, please contact Sally Ann Bird sally.bird@wno.org.uk | 029 2063 5015 | 07395 245800
