Be part of our new Ring

Wagner’s epic cycle is one of the most challenging works to bring to the stage. This monumental work of art requires huge resources, and without any corporate or government funding we seek your support in making this ambitious cycle a reality.

For the greatest philanthropic support, you may wish to consider Production Sponsorship or our Wagner Future Fund. Being part of our new Ring cycle will bring you closer to the productions, with insights behind the scenes. Join our extended family, share your love of Longborough with other like-minded Wagnerians and opera lovers, and find out how you can support our plans by contacting Membership & Legacy Manager Gill Powell on or on 01451 830292.
