Give local artists a chance to export their talent

Our Quebec talent and creativity light up the world’s greatest stages... This is our pride. Get in on the act by donating, and allow our art and culture to continue to shine!

Our concrete actions:

  • The Atelier lyrique produces the stars of tomorrow by providing the training required for home-grown talent to blossom. Donate to encourage the emergence of opera talent.

  • Supporting new works like Another Brick In The Wall – The Opera by Roger Waters, after his leading work The Wall, to celebrate Montreal’s 375th anniversary, and Les feluettes, a major Quebec theatrical piece by Michel-Marc Bouchard, set to music for its world opera premiere. Sung drama at its most daring! Donate now to become closely involved in our international exposure and reach.

  • A new production: Dialogue des carmélites, with all-new sets, and original staging by Serge Denoncourt. Donate now to stimulate Quebec creativity.

  • Our artisans, our heritage: a workshop with over 4,000 costumes and some twenty sets, unique know-how that is 100% local... Your donation contributes to building our cultural heritage and furthering our expertise.

  • OPERA America: Montreal will be at the heart of discussions on opera for the first time in Quebec.

Give Mathieu a chance to experience his first opera

Mathieu has never seen an opera. Give him the chance to experience his first opera, like over 7,000 other young people do each year, thanks to the Opéra de Montréal’s free educational efforts. For we know that an appreciation of opera is developed early on, that young people are our audience of tomorrow, and that art has a major impact on personal development and contributes to academic success. The Opéra de Montréal is relying on your donations so that these projects can continue to enthral the new generation of opera fans.

  • Student rehearsals: each year, 7,000 young people are introduced to opera—free of charge—via student rehearsals. It’s their first contact, but never their last!

  • School matinee: to give 10 to 12 year-olds a taste of the art form by raising their awareness of opera, its history, its professions, and its music.

  • coOpera: to enable 90 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to produce their own musical performance based on a work presented at the OdM. Art as a source of hope, ethnic integration, academic success, teamwork, and efforts rewarded…

  • Interactive workshop and exhibition in the school milieu: to introduce everyone to opera and stimulate a taste for discovery…
