Create. Reach. Inspire

Donate now. We need your support to help us to return to the stage, our communities and to secure our future for generations to come.

This year Welsh National Opera celebrates our 75th anniversary. We are a Company that started with humble beginnings, founded by a group of people from all walks of life who just wanted to share their passion for opera with their local community.

Since then, WNO has grown into an internationally renowned organisation, producer of award-winning opera productions and one of the largest touring companies in Europe. Whilst Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on the entire arts sector, we are focused and committed to ensuring that the next 75 years are even better than the last.


Your donation will help us to create opera that is vivid, exhilarating and bold. From inspirational classics that resonate across the ages to innovative new commissions, our artistic programme connects with people across the world.


Your donation will help our four UK community hubs in South Wales, North Wales, West Midlands, and the South Coast of England where we deliver bespoke programmes designed to engage people from all walks of life with the power of opera and live music.


Your donation will enable us to develop and nurture the next generation of world class singers, artists and creative practitioners through our talent development programme.

WNO was born in the communities of South Wales, and today our reach extends to numerous cities across the United Kingdom, as well as overseas.  A 75th year is a good moment for us to reinforce our belief that WNO is here for all those communities, and to create work that is both emotionally thrilling but also meaningful and resonant, and which reflects modern life in all its glorious diversity and complexity.
