Our aim is to raise £10000 which will help us to create a new production of Verdi’s La Traviata which will tour the country this summer.
For 7 years Opera Bohemia has toured small scale productions of well- loved operas all over Scotland, visiting over 40 venues, bringing performances to many areas of the country that do not otherwise get the opportunity to see live opera and introducing a new generation to the art form while at the same time providing much needed performance opportunities to young professional singers and musicians.
The productions have enjoyed critical acclaim and the company now has a great following throughout Scotland with audiences always excited to see what Opera Bohemia will come up with next!
Unfortunately, due to limited resources, some major funding that the company has relied on over the last few years is not available for our 2016 production. While this is a setback but we do not want to let down our artists, venues and loyal audiences throughout Scotland.
So, we have scaled back our original plans and now hope to be able to give 12 performances of Verdi’s La Traviata this summer.
We are still a long way from being able to afford this and so we are appealing for financial help to keep this Scottish tour alive. Opera Bohemia prides itself on maximising the use of funds. We believe this new production of one of the world’s favourite operas, Verdi’s La Traviata, with a star line up of talented professional opera singers in Scotland, will be something very special and hope that you will consider supporting the project.
