Created in 2010, Inspire is Opera Holland Park's award-winning outreach and education programme. It is dedicated to working with the community to embrace, engage and enrich the lives of all through the means of opera.
As part of our Inspire work, we offer approximately 3,000 accessible tickets per season (roughly 12% of our total capacity), including Free Tickets for Under 18s, Over 65s, exclusive offers for Under 30s and half price tickets for NHS staff and community workers. Find out more.
Inspire aims to:
Bring people together
Inspire brings together marginalised groups and those experiencing social isolation and exclusion, as well as the general public, in our inclusive opera community.
Educate and integrate
Using music, singing and other art forms, we aim to engage as wide a range of people as possible in opera, while in the process exploring and breaking the taboos around a wide range of topics.
Enrich the lives of everyone
Music and opera bring a huge array of benefits to our everyday lives. We aim to bring music and opera to those unable to reach our theatre, and enable the best possible access to and within our our venue.
Be a point of pride to members of the company and community
Social responsibility is central to Opera Holland Park’s beliefs, and Inspire aims for our creatives, staff and neighbours to connect with their community, welcoming more people to the art form.
