About Campaign

A free event held at Singapore Botanic Gardens, Opera in the Park (OIP) provides an environment for people, regardless of language and age, to enjoy music and to allow them to understand opera on a more meaningful level on an annual basis.

Based around well-known opera tunes commonly heard in commercials, this year's free concert is themed "Opera in Commercials" and aims to dispel the misconception that opera music is inaccessible and in fact, the genre is more prevalent than one imagines.

As we enter into the 11th year of Opera in the Park, we would like to request for your support because despite our fundraising endeavours, and grants that we receive, funds are still insufficient to cover our expenses.

About the Charity

Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO) is the flagship company of western opera in Singapore, with the main objective of advocating, developing and nurturing the opera scene and talent in Singapore by presenting this artform on a different platforms that are accessible to everyone. Since its inaugural performance of Mozart's Die Zauberflote in 1991, SLO has been active in presenting memorable annual seasons of operas, concerts and musical events for the enjoyment of Singaporeans from all walks of life and to give fans opportunities to enjoy operas seldom performed in Asia-Pacific region.

However, producing opera is an expensive undertaking. It is a complete and multi-faceted Performing Art as it incorporates and involves vocal art (singing), symphonic art (orchestra), dance, visual arts (sets), theatre (acting) and design (costumes and lighting). Hundreds of people are involved in an opera.

Funding from the National Arts Council and box office receipts are insufficient to cover the costs of all of our performances as tickets are heavily subsidised to ensure that the average Singaporean can afford to pay for a ticket. Most of the costs have to be sourced from sponsorship and private donations from individuals and companies.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
