Garsington Opera relies enormously on the vital contributions made by individuals. Opera is an expensive undertaking involving not only singers, sets and costumes but a full orchestra too. Annual memberships enable the Opera to plan for the long-term.
Affiliate Members receive booking information a month before public booking opens. They are invited to join as full Members as soon as space becomes available.
You are welcome to join as an Affiliate Member (suggested £20 donation) at any time of the year for the following season.
The GO≤35 scheme is now full for the 2013 season. Please see the following information to join a waiting list for membership this year, should space become available. The scheme will fully reopen in January 2014.
As demand for tickets each season is very high, this initiative gives young people a real opportunity to pre-book subsidised tickets to the opera, ahead of the public but after Friends and Affiliate Members. Places on this scheme are limited to 100 in this first year, on a first-come first-served basis.
For an annual cost of just £10 participants can benefit from:
- priority booking of two £30 tickets (attendees must be 35 or under)
- two complimentary glasses of Champagne
- free transfer to/from High Wycombe station
- a half-price programme
This annual membership circle is named after the founder of Garsington Opera, Leonard Ingrams, whose vision it was to set up an opera company in his garden at Garsington Manor in 1989. Ingrams Circle members will be invited to attend events and parties to become more closely involved with the Opera Company.
THE CONSTELLATION OF GARSINGTON OPERA
The Constellation of Garsington are collectively associated each year with a particular production.
FRIENDS OF GARSINGTON OPERA
The Friends of Garsington Opera receive priority booking each year and we currently have a waiting list for this scheme. To join this waiting list we recommend you become an Affiliate Member.
