The Opera Ball is one of SLO’s fundraising events. This year, your support will not only help us continue to produce a fully staged opera and concerts for adults and children, it is also time to honour and remember our Patron-in-Chief, the late Mr S R Nathan, who passed away in August 2016.

Since 2007, Mr Nathan has showed his encouragement and support by attending our performances whenever his schedule permitted. Back-stage and green room encounters with Mr Nathan had always been highly anticipated by the cast and crew. His contributions have helped us achieved our goals. To continue with his good spirit in supporting the arts, the SLO has created the SLO-S R Nathan Opera Development Fund which will help further the advancement of opera in Singapore. Through this Opera Ball, we hope to raise at least $200,000.

Dr Ng Eng Hen, Minister for Defence and SLO’s Patron, will grace the evening as our Guest-of-Honour.

Join us for a memorable night with your support of a table from as low as $5,000. Each table seats 10 guests. Individual seats are also available. All donations received are eligible for tax exemption at 2.5 times the donation amount. Your donation will also qualify us for the “dollar for dollar” Cultural Matching Fund initiated by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth.
