Membership - Friends of ACOCo


Opera is the most complex of performing arts; increasingly, it is expensive to produce. 

What you see on stage is not even the half of it, with months of preparation, multiple layers of creativity and complicated execution. When it gets to the stage, it is our job to make it look easy!

Friend Membership helps ACOCo put contemporary opera on stage, employ musicians, artists and creative teams, develop emerging artists, tell interesting stories, champion new music and creators, keep ticket prices down, attract new audiences for opera theatre. You can meet new people, share exclusive Friends' experiences and be part of the exciting world of opera.
It is thrilling for our artists to personally know people who are supporting them in their creative work. We encourage our Friends to be Ambassadors for ACOCo. Bringing people to our performances is a wonderful way to support and champion ACOCo.
