A number of organisations have generously supported The Italian Opera Aria.

The initial funding which has supported the project came from the Eugene Ludwig Family Charitable Trust.

An award from the University of Oxford's John Fell Fund provided the support for the database to be taken online.

Michael Burden was awarded the Collins Fellowship by the Huntington Library, in San Marino, California, which underpinned the research into the manuscript librettos held in the Larpent Collection of Plays.
