Have you ever imagined getting a little closer to a Fulham Opera production?
How about attending a dress rehearsal, chatting with the director over a glass of fizz and chatting with your favourite singers backstage?
We're pulling back the curtain on how we get things done - and giving you a one-off opportunity to get up close and personal with Verdi's 5-act grand opera, Don Carlo.
As you've probably heard, we'll be pulling off one of our most audacious projects to date this November.
Don Carlo will have an all-star cast - we're excited to get into the rehearsals and we can't wait to see you there.
But to make it the best possible performance it can be, we need some up-front help from you, our loyal supporters.
In addition to the talented cast and orchestra who'll be financed through ticket sales (early bird offer tickets are only £25!), we want to put on a memorable production worthy of Verdi's original vision.
We need additional budget ring-fenced for lighting, costume and set costs. These include hiring an internationally successful lighting designer, the lights themselves, stands, rig, lighting desk and setup.
A first for Fulham Opera, we've launched a Kickstarter fundraising page, where you can pledge to donate to the production and receive some unique benefits in return.
How about £25 for a commemorative mug and signed programme? Add the pre-concert talk to this for an extra £25. You could get preferential seating and the chance to attend a dress rehearsal. Or just go 'all out' and get the lot, along with a backstage pass and glass of prosecco, for a £100 donation.
We've already raised over £600 of our £2,000 target, and the rewards are going fast.
Don't miss out - we only have a limited number of spaces to attend the dress rehearsal and backstage passes, so if you're thinking about being part of the Kickstarter campaign, just click the link at the end of this email to make a donation.
We know you've enjoyed supporting our productions in the past, and we'd love to see you there for Don Carlo - it's going to be an epic performance.
Thanks for your support!
