Les Azuriales Company of Angels

Please help us help a singer - they will always remember your assistance - and with your support he or she may go on to have a brilliant career.

"Business angels" invest in start-up companies to help them at their early stages of development. Our Company of Angels does the same for the careers of young artists.
We have aim through the generosity of our private donors and our Sponsors to raise as much as £75,000 per year which creates a considerable impact. To achieve this we have created the Company of Angels, a select support group. The Company is open to individuals and companies.
We will:
  • Involve members as closely as possible with our young artists and give you the enjoyment of participating in our new adventure (the higher level of membership, the more involved you will be) - this is a key feature of the Company which we believe will give you confidence in what we do and how your money is spent;
  • Ensure that as much as possible of your donation goes to help young artists;
  • Hold one fundraising opera evening in the Villa Ephrussi in exactly the same format as at the Festival and it will be followed by dinner. It will only be available to the members of our Company of Angels. There will also be two other private evenings for our sponsors - Archangels will be able to attend one of these (subject to confirmation).

Les Azuriales Opera Trust

This is a UK registered charity (Reg.

It is also, where appropriate, able to support repair and restoration of the buildings in which we perform.

This is the official organisation that runs our activities in France and it is an officially registered "Association" with its registered office ("Siège Social") at the Festival's Nice address. All Angels become "Membres Amis". The President is Sarah Holford, the founder of Les Azuriales.
