The Friends of Scottish Opera


As a Friend of Scottish Opera you'll be joining over 1600 like-minded supporters all over Scotland. You can enjoy a range of benefits for less than £4 per month. And what’s more, you'll be helping Scottish Opera too! 


Join a community of people who love and value opera. When you become a Friend, you’ll receive a specially-designed Scottish Opera lapel pin so you can show your support wherever you are.


Meet new friends. With designated meeting places in each of the theatres, you’ll always be able to spot fellow Friends for a pre-show drink or a quick critique at the interval.


Enjoy study days, offering exclusive insights into the operas being performed, talks and recitals hosted in different areas. Study days always include lunch so you can catch up on what everyone else thinks. For further information or to book a place, please download and complete the booking form.

Attend dress rehearsals. As long as you’ve booked tickets for the production, you’ll be offered the chance to attend the dress rehearsal free of charge.


We caught up with some of the members of The Friends of Scottish Opera and asked them why it was so important to them. See what they love about being a Friend.
