Wide Open Opera is a project based company with no regular income from any source. We have no staff, no permanent office and no major overheads. Each project begins from scratch and scales up to the relevant size. To date we have received production and project funding from The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Culture Ireland, Limerick City of Culture and Dublin City Council, as well as collaborating on projects that have been funded by arts councils and agencies overseas.

We also rely on building partnerships with other key organisations to achieve shared goals. These have included the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, National Concert Hall, Cork Opera House and others.

We are actively seeking to diversify our income base, and to attract support and funding from corporate bodies and individual donors. Our model will continue to be project based, so donations will be sought for particular projects, not to sustain company overheads.
