Please help Opera Rara
continue its work

Opera Rara's endeavours to recreate the neglected operatic and song repertoire of the 19th century make a unique contribution to musical life.

Outstanding scholarship, an investigative musical curiosity, a commitment to performing brilliance, and the very best recording techniques mean that undiscovered works come to life at home and in the concert hall.

Opera Rara is a remarkable success story. Yet this success is only possible through the generosity of our supporters. We rely on the many individuals world-wide who believe in our mission and appreciate our ability to bring this thrilling, neglected music to life.

There are two ways you can help us:

  • By joining the Opera Rara Association.
