The Official Circle of Friends of the Vienna State Opera

»The only way to have a friend is to be one.«
RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Private and corporate engagement is becoming increasingly important to our work of advancing and reinforcing the Vienna State Opera as one of the world’s leading opera houses.
We regard engagement as upholding shared ideals and also making financial contributions. The most loyal patrons of the Vienna State Opera are also its ambassadors, they express their connection to the opera house in many different ways. Supporting the Vienna State Opera not only means being personally committed to one of the most important cultural institutions in the country, it also offers the satisfaction of being part of an artistic dialogue and an important social mission.
With the 2020-21 season, the Vienna State Opera is therefore establishing a separate, Official Circle of Friends whose support will go exclusively to the opera house. The goals are:

    → to offer its members concrete benefits when purchasing tickets and visiting the opera house

    → to enter into a dialogue with members within the scope of events developed exclusively for the Official Circle of Friends

    → to dedicate all funds raised by the Official Circle of Friends to inviting new and young audiences to the opera house. New communication and participation programs will be developed to allow young people to attend dress rehearsals or to enable the integration of our new Opera Studio in these activities.

As part of the new Official Circle of Friends, you will meet up with like-minded opera lovers and have a choice of different levels of membership. When you join, you will be offered a variety of opportunities to participate in the artistic life of the opera house, to stay informed and to enjoy benefits. No matter which level you choose with any contribution you are creating the chance for all those interested in music, but especially younger, economically disadvantaged people to experience and to love the fascination of opera.
