Grants for Staged Productions of Handel’s Operas

The Handel Institute offers a grant of up to £5,000 towards a production of an opera by Handel. ‘Opera’ means a work that Handel considered to be an opera: one of his works in Italian that he performed with sets, costumes and action; and which contains at least some music by him.


The production company may be professional or amateur or a
combination. The closing date for applications in 2020 is 31 October 2020, for a production to take place by the end of 2022.
