Since launching in December 2016, Opera Wire has provided wide-ranging coverage to companies around the world, both big and small. As we look ahead, we want OperaWire to be the ultimate opera experience online with a mobile app, video content and series that will allow opera fans a different perspective on the opera world. 

Why We Need Your Support 

Over the past two years, we have managed to keep OperaWire going strong on an advertising model, but we have found very unstable results.

As you might imagine, this creates other challenges. OperaWire is a full-time job for its two creators David and Francisco, but a such a time investment must also include corresponding full-time financial stability; unfortunately without that seeking out other work becomes essential and the time commitment to OperaWire would correspondingly drop. 

This is not something we even want to consider.

But that is not the only thing that we are seeking out with the campaign. We currently have close to 20 writers contributing content on a volunteer basis, many who have done so for years - they also deserve to be remunerated for their efforts on a consistent basis. 

And of course, OperaWire can and should expand beyond what it does. In order for that to happen, not only must the people currently contributing be able to continue doing so under more stable financial circumstances, but the company itself must have resources to be able to invest in itself and new ideas and technology.

This is why we are turning to you - our loyal readers. 

What Your Contribution Does

1. Provide financial backing for the current team so that we may continue to dedicate ourselves fully to OperaWire's long-term development.

2. Help us invest in new technologies, including improvements to the current website and a mobile app that will provide stronger connectivity for our users through updates.

Our breakdown would be as follows if we were to reach our goals. 

60 % Editorial Staff / Freelancers
25% Special Projects (Ie: Mobile App)
10% Operating Costs
5% Marketing / Sales

Thank you!

We want to thank all of our readers and patrons and look forward to your feedback and contributions in hopes of making OperaWire a destination for those that love this art form as much as we do.

Goals
69 of 2000 patrons
This is our basic goal which we expect would enable our writers to be properly compensated for their hard-earned work. We will also be able to hire a new team member who will be tasked with content quality improvement.
