Technical & Production forum

The Technical & Production forum brings together Technical Directors and Production Managers who regularly meet at Opera Europa conferences or separately. Since it was founded in 2004, the senior Opera Europa forum has dealt with issues like Production Project Management, in-house workshops versus outsourcing, good practice for rentals and co-productions, and the conception of a Theatre Database.

The steering group of the forum is composed of:

Bob Brandsen (Royal Opera House Covent Garden)
Artūras Alenskas (Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet)
Paulo Da-Luz (Den Norske Opera og Ballett)
Charmaine Goodchild (La Monnaie Brussels)
Åsa Jansson (GöteborgsOperan)
David Stuttart (Wexford Festival Opera)
Malgorzata Szablowska (Polish National Opera)
​​Timo Tuovila (Finnish National Opera Helsinki)

The next meeting of the Technical & Production forum takes place at La Monnaie in Brussels on 7 and 8 March 2019.

During this meeting, on top of the opportunity to visit the renovated stage and attend the world premiere of Frankenstein, we will engage in discussions under the Open Space method, allowing you to set the discussion points within each topic.

Please sign up by 20 February, registration is now OPEN. Download the form and the programme here!
