Sponsorship / Partnership
We're open to new relationships! Join with us in building something great -
We punch well above our weight in social and traditional media reach, and our performances and events are acclaimed as exceptional. If you're a business looking to partner with an arts company that deeply values Excellence, Creativity, Accessibility, Collaboration and Generosity, then we'd love to speak with you about how Sponsorship / Partnership could best serve our mutual interests!
Opera is the most complex of performing arts; it is expensive to produce, because like anything of value, it involves many more people than those in the spotlight.
What you see on stage is not even half of it, with months of preparation, multiple layers of creativity and complicated execution.
By sponsoring a production, as a presenting or contributing partner, you are associating with extraordinary achievement and adding immeasurable value to our society.
We'd love to speak with you about what your company or business might like to achieve in partnering with ACOCo. Contact us.
Yarra Valley Opera Festival
Heading into its fourth year, the Yarra Valley Opera Festival is seeking a significant partner. This little Festival that roars - winning awards every year since 2018 - is ripe for a long-term partner. The only designated opera festival in the Southern Hemisphere, with impact right around and beyond Australia.
Contact us to discuss how we might collaborate to take this unique Australian arts-tourism activity to the next level.
Signature Project - Commission
Is new Australian work, new stories and groundbreaking artistic product your thing? We have an MOI with a leading Australian composer, and a commission all lined up - soon to hit the headlines. We'd love to engage in a discussion about how you, your Company or your Foundation might want to join with ACOCo in taking opera in Australia to a whole new dimension. Let's set up a time to talk
Sponsor an Artist, Conductor or Creative Director
Each year we invite internationally-renowned artists to work with us on a specific project. Sponsoring an Artist, Conductor or Creative Director is one way of contributing to an opera on stage, and also engaging/presenting 'your artist' in a private/exclusive side event. Engaging personally with an elite, international opera artist is a rare opportunity - talk to us about helping to bring excellence and exceptional talent to Victoria - Australia.
Adopt a Young Artist
By the time our Young Artists reach the level of our Performance Program, they are beyond Postgraduate level and have sunk a lot of money into getting this far. Careers in opera require years of investment and ongoing professional development, and a talented performer doesn't always have access to financial resources to sustain their path. Like Olympic athletes, our young artists benefit from financial assistance from dear supporters of the arts. You'll be introduced to 'your' Young Artist at the beginning of their program, and assist and follow their journey for 1, 2 or 3 years. Who knows, one day you might be travelling to Austria to catch a performance*.
