“As the patron of Pegasus Opera it has given me great pleasure to see the Company develop and achieve its artistic goals over the past few years. It is only through the support of trusts, foundations and corporate sponsorship that the Company can continue to achieve its aims and objectives of helping artists from all cultural backgrounds to gain the experience and training necessary for them to succeed on the world opera stage. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all past supporters and to encourage those of you considering an involvement with Pegasus Opera Company!”

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa

“I am so excited to become a part of Pegasus Opera in their effort to extend the reach of this glorious art form, supporting those from neglected communities through this music, and encouraging emerging talent from wherever it may be found. While it feels as though the conversation surrounding race and ethnicity in Western classical music has reached an important milestone, there is still a mountain of work to be done. I would like to be a part of that work and look forward to doing so as a patron of Pegasus Opera.”

Roderick Williams

“I am very proud to be a patron of Pegasus Opera Company who are trailblazers paving the way for diverse artists in opera. Having worked with the founder Lloyd Newton and the current Artistic Director Alison Buchanan many years ago, I am proud to see how Pegasus Opera has grown and the strides this company has made as they tirelessly advocate for equity in the arts. Pegasus Opera Company’s mission of putting diversity at the forefront is so important and as a performer myself I know how vital it is that we support these organizations. Pegasus Opera goes from strength to strength and I am thrilled to be a part of this.”
