Operatraveller.com exists to create truly independent writing on opera. Writing that attempts to engage, to challenge and to reflect. To comment from the perspective of someone with vocal training and with an open mind towards productions – to look at why things work or might not work.
 
You can help support and expand the range of coverage of the site. Thanks to my patrons, I have been able to see an even wider range of productions. Your support helps get me to the theatre and to even more places and shows than ever before. By becoming a member of the operatraveller.com community you are directly supporting the independent, wide-ranging and informed coverage that the site provides.

If every single visitor to the site during one year supported with just 1GBP, it would keep the site running for a decade.

Two of the biggest compliments I have received were one from a reader who said ‘thanks to you I have learned so much’ and another from a leading singer who said they were impressed by my knowledge of singing. Over time, the site has received increasing numbers of hits, been widely quoted and received very positive feedback from readers, artists, agents, intendants and other industry professionals. The site also has a dedicated number of subscribers who receive every article directly into their inboxes.

Thank you for supporting, for engaging through comments on the site or on social media and for reading. By being part of the operatraveller.com community on Patreon you are directly supporting independent writing on opera as well as insightful interviews with artists.
