HELP YOUR LOCAL OPERA COMPANY
The pressure of entering the first-world operatic community on a third-world budget, with virtually no support from government entities, constantly puts the opera into crisis mode. Entering our first full-size season in 2006, we need your help! We have been running an educational outreach program, special training for young musicians, and putting together not only several major productions a year but also choral, symphonic and chamber concerts. Please feel free to donate generously to the Bangkok Opera Foundation, a non-profit cultural and educational entity registered with the government of Thailand. (You don't need to have a paypal account to donate with your credit card).
The Bangkok Opera operates as a part of the Bangkok Opera Foundation, a nonprofit educational and cultual organization originally under the patronage of HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana.
