Welcome to Opera Lyra Ottawa’s Ambassadors Program
You are invited to become an Opera Lyra Ottawa Ambassador because you recognize the value of Opera Lyra Ottawa’s indispensible role in the community it serves to inspire and engage through opera.
For the past 26years, the Company has grown to become a vital part of the Region’s artist fabric, offering excellent productions of classic and modern masterpieces and so much more through its lauded Education and Outreach programs.
The Ambassadors Program is designed to help you “get the word out” about this remarkable organization and its good work. Working together, we can help build loyal audiences and enlarge the donor/sponsor base.
The Ambassadors Program creates community sales force of all stakeholders by supplying the necessary tools. Your Ambassadors Tool Kit (below) includes information about the Company, Social Media Guide and promotional materials as they become available. As Ambassadors, we reach out to all of Opera Lyra Ottawa’s publics and invite them to experience opera as new ticket holders or subscribers, or to renew their subscription.
Fact - The number one reason why someone comes to the opera for the first time is because someone they knew invited them!
As Ambassadors, you are encouraged to contact (phone, email, tweet, Facebook, etc.) your family, friends, colleagues and spread the word about Opera Lyra Ottawa and its vital place in the community. Opera Lyra Ottawa brings to the National Arts Centre a live theatrical experience not to be missed.
What can you say about opera to entice someone to come and experience opera for the first time? Here are some quotes from our Opera Lyra Ottawa Chorus members:
Misty – “It’s like attending an 18th Century ‘rock show’ that is combined with special effects, twisting plots and fantastic costumes and sets”.
Rachel – “You find, in an opera, the same magic that is found when, as a child, a fairy tale was read to you. You enter a world that is so different from your own yet touches your emotions in a way only magic can. The music transports you, the plot captivates you and you become part of the story. You leave enriched and moved.”
Doug – “Vegas, with better singing.”
Glen – “Leave all your daily cares at home. Bring your love of music. Bring your heart, and be prepared to have it wrung out and filled again.”
