We believe that being a corporate partner of Scottish Opera, a National Performing Company at the top of its game, is good for business. That’s why we don’t just deliver great performances and events. We also create opportunities for you to network and meet other corporate members – such as through our Sponsors’ Club.
Scottish Opera Sponsors' Club
A number of our sponsors and corporate members had said that they would welcome the opportunity to meet and network with other business people involved with Scottish Opera and to find out more about what goes into producing our artform. In response, we decided to establish our Sponsors’ Club and our first event was at our Production Studios in Glasgow in April 2012.
The event started with some light refreshments, mingling, and an opportunity to look around our set of Tosca which was set up in the Rehearsal Studios.
Our sponsor, Tom Flockhart of Capital Solutions then acted as interviewer in a fascinating Q&A session with Scottish Opera General Director, Alex Reedijk. Guests were treated to a behind the scenes look at the tough decisions, budget battles and ingenuity required to create productions that reflect Scottish Opera’s commitment to artistic excellence and innovation while balancing the books.
Our Sponsors’ Club meets up twice yearly. Our next event takes place in October 2012 and is open to all sponsors, corporate members and in-kind sponsors of Scottish Opera.
