The POV Producers
Our Financial and Creative Partners
The POV Producers Campaign recognizes donors who give up to $999 a year to Pacific Opera.
What does it mean to be a POV Producer?
- You are a partner in the creation of original opera productions.
- You are an investor in the company, with a stake in POV's artistic success and financial health.
- You are a creative force helping to protect the vitality of the arts in this community.
Make no mistake, it is only with the help of donors who care passionately about opera that we can continue to bring you the vibrant, intimate productions you expect and deserve.
What does your support as a POV Producer accomplish?
- You help us create completely new, locally built productions, as envisioned by Canadian directors and designers. These are not rental sets and costumes, but original productions, built right here in Victoria, for POV audiences.
- You build a future for opera in the community. POV's Artist Training Programs nurture fine local singers and emerging artists from across Canada. Our outreach and education programs introduce live opera performance to students and share the music and stories of each opera with the community.
- You support unique opportunities for outstanding artists. Over 95% of our artists are Canadian, and each casting choice considers how to advance a singer's artistry and career. Many early opportunities with POV have led to significant national and international careers. Our casting policies focus on offering all artists new challenges, including role debuts and the chance to perform works they might not otherwise be able to add to their repertoire.
- You benefit personally with an enriched operatic experience. To thank you and to enhance your involvement in the productions you help make possible, POV presents special Producers' Events – closed working rehearsals, private concerts, and tours of our Production Shop to bring you behind the scenes and inside the productions you support.
Please help us continue to produce opera of the highest calibre by making a donation now.
