The main aim of the Friends of Drottningholms Slottsteater is to give long-term financial support to Drottningholms Slottsteater, so that the theatre can continue as an internationally respected stage for early opera in Sweden. This is made possible by membership fees, proceeds from capital, and contributions from individuals. The Association also awards training scholarships each year to young singers, dancers and musicians who have worked at Drottningholm Slottsteater.
This season the Friends are providing support for the theatre's joint production with the University College of Opera in Stockholm of Mozart's Così fan Tutte, presented under the auspices of the theatre's Young Artists' Programme and aims to introduce young and promising singers to Drottningholm.
The Friends of Drottningholms Slottsteater is a non-profit-making organisation established in 1935 and has some 2 000 members. HM the King is the Association's patron, HM the Queen the honorary chairwoman and HRH Crown Princess Victoria honorary member of the Friends.
