Opera Factory has been operating since 1994.
It was formally restructured in May 2000 as “The Opera Factory Trust” – a registered charitable trust with IRD approved donee status.
The Opera Factory Trust is registered with The Charities Commission as an approved New Zealand charity. Opera Factory is governed by a board of trustees, and managed by a largely voluntary administrative team. An open door policy has been made possible by enlightened and generous philanthropic support, by grants from philanthropic trusts, local authorities, and Creative New Zealand.
