Opera de Bauge

Platform for young opera singers and musicians

since 2003 young musicians & singers from all over the world arrive in Bauge in July to make friends, learn, enhance their CV & make great music in 3 fully staged operas. A new theatre was needed but has no stage. Our appeal for £10.000 for our acclaimed education project is to give singers a stage

Situation

The theatre we used since 2004 is now defunct and we hired another. It is more expensive than the last and has no stage. Our singers look to us to provide a showcase for their talents. Our productions have been praised by critics and the professional skills, self confidence and experience we give has helped many of our alumni who have made good careers and are now performing in great houses all over the world. We will not be able to give world class productions in 2018 without a stage.

Solution

We own steeldeck legs for staging. We need to buy/hire the platforms to go on top. For a 12x 8m stage the cost is £12,000 of which we can pay £2,000. It would be best to buy as we won't need to spend further sums in future years. We will be able to continue to put on opera of the highest standard, supporting young singers and musicians well into the future. Without a stage our 49th, 50th & 51st productions will be less convincing than our previous ones and a less worthy platform for our singers
