Why Donate?

Why donate to AtG? Because we’re attracting new audiences to opera by consistently demonstrating artistic excellence and hiring top Canadian talent. Because we deliberately keep ticket prices affordable, meaning that ticket sales only cover a small portion of a show’s costs. Because each show is a big risk, and your support means the world to us.

AtG is lean and resourceful, and every dollar donated is transformational for our company.

Join our mission to help develop the audiences of the future, keep opera vibrant and youthful, and employ the most brilliant emerging artists this country has to offer.

And the best part: you’ll have a lot of fun being part of the AtG gang.
