We are planning to reschedule these performances at a later date and are still working on confirming details. Current ticket holders will be contacted by one of our staff members.
As you are aware, Pinchgut Opera is a Not For Profit organisation and 60% of our annual income is derived directly from ticket sales. The impact of coronavirus will be global and felt across all industries and in particular by the live performance industry. We rely on our ticket sales and the generosity of our supporters to be able to pay over 200 artists and arts workers each year. The ban on public events is going to be a challenge as we adjust plans to get through the year. We are working on creative ways to maintain engagement between our audiences and artists who work with us. These next few months all performing arts companies will need the support of their communities the most. Please consider donating your purchased ticket to any company who is being forced to cancel performances.
We will continue to closely monitor any updates and inform you of new developments.
