We're raising funds for our student-run production of The Cunning Little Vixen, an opera by Leoš Janáček. The opera will run on the 12th, 14th and 15th of March, and should be a great show!

Who are we?

- The Society was started by students at the University of Aberdeen who had a passion for Opera, and has become a great addition to the University's many excellent musical societies. 

our story

- The Opera Society seeks to provide a platform for students and local enthusiasts to experience being part of an opera production. The roles are diverse and range from leadership positions such as director or conductor, to being a singer in the cast or chorus, a player in the orchestra, or making up part of the production or management teams. 

- The Cunning Little Vixen was selected by our Musical Director, Lucy Hole, and is directed by James Leonard.

- We are committed to our production being of the highest possible quality, and giving the best possible experience to both our Society's members and the audience.

- Putting on a high quality performance requires investing money (however many costs we reduce)! Donations would give the Society the means to maximise our creative effort, and produce a really excellent opera. 

Where will the money go?

We'd like to make our production as professional as we can, while keeping costs as low as possible. 

Our production costs will look something like this:

- Lighting hire and crew: £1500

- Costumes: £1500

- Set and props: £1000

- Printing costs (Programmes, posters, flyers etc): £150

- Orchestra (various costs): £500

In the case that we have money left over from fund raising/ticket sales, we would plan to pass this on to next year's committee, so that they can continue to create high-quality student run operas. 


- Donors will have their names listed in the programme, with our thanks (unless they opt out).

- Donors of a certain amount will be offered tickets to one of the shows (see the section on rewards for details)!
