The training Mascarade Opera Studio provides would not be possible without the generous support of individuals. From sponsoring individual artists and studio activities, to becoming a Friend of the studio and accessing all our performances, there are numerous ways your support impacts and sustains our work


Sponsor a student with an annual scholarship (€5000)

By sponsoring an annual scholarship, you can directly support one of our cohort of young artists. You will be offered the opportunity to name the scholarship as you desire, attach criteria (for example, to support a répétiteur, or an artist from a particular country), and will be treated to a private recital by the artist in receipt of your scholarship.

Sponsor a masterclass (€2500)

Support the studio in bringing an international star for a masterclass and concert. As part of your sponsorship you will be welcomed to attend the concert, as well as enjoying a private dinner with the masterclass giver.

Patron (€1000)

Join our patrons circle, offering access to all events, masterclasses, and performances throughout the year, as well as the option of one soirée a year being presented at a location of your choosing (travel and accommodation excluded).

Friend (€250)

Become a friend of the studio and have access to all our events, masterclasses and performances! The non-profit activities of the studio are run through the Fondazione Mascarade Opera. Tax benefits may be possible. For more information on any aspect of philanthropy to the Studio, please contact our Chief Executive Max Fane on [email protected]

Corporate Support

Mascarade Opera Studio exists not only to train some of the world’s best operatic talents, but make a significant contribution to the cultural life of Florence and Tuscany.

As a new, innovative organisation with an international perspective, we can provide unique experiences designed with your objectives in mind, from private recitals and behind-the-scenes events with our studio artists, to masterclasses and hospitality with international stars, to brand positioning at concerts throughout the year.

We would be delighted to discuss sponsoring any aspect of our work, or becoming a Corporate Partner, with you further. Tax benefits for corporations based in Italy are possible through supporting the Fondazione Mascarade Opera. Please contact Chief Executive Max Fane for more details on [email protected]

Showcase Sponsorship

Each year Mascarade Opera Studio presents one showcase with our studio artists performing fully staged Opera scenes accompanied by orchestra and one orchestral concert. Taking place in Florence and Berlin, these showcases offer unique sponsorship opportunities, with potential for brand placement, impressing colleagues and providing staff benefits.
