Welcome to Pacific Opera Victoria's first Holiday Auction in support of our artist community. We are grateful for your interest and support in our art, and for your generosity in supporting our artists, and our local business partners, with your enthusiastic bidding and patronage.

AppealsOur Goal
Pacific Opera Holiday Appeal
Pacific Opera Victoria's Holiday Auction aims to support artists and opera in our community. Please donate generously to our one big fundraising event of the year.

For Pacific Opera, the cancellation of numerous community event and postponement of all our Royal Theatre productions has had direct consequences for some 250 artists and cultural workers. Out of deep concern for these artists, we have provided compensation for lost work. We are also finding every way we can to help artists continue to create and perform, even now. Your support is crucial to helping artists survive and the art form to thrive during the biggest challenge this company has ever faced.

Please consider purchasing an auction item or donating any amount today.

Donations over $25 will receive a full tax receipt.

Our Goal: $10,000
