Let's be Friends

Cambridge Handel Opera Company aims to put Baroque opera back on the Cambridge map, but producing opera well is expensive. By joining the Friends of Cambridge Handel Opera Company, you can help support the company and in return receive benefits such as advance booking or opportunities to be involved with the creative process. We offer a number of levels of membership with a range of benefits.
