It is a pleasure to present to you the Opera Europa spring conference programme with its many highlights. With four different venues in play, I recommend using the WienMobil app for seamless travel.
Our programme offers many performances, encouraging you to discover the work of our Viennese members. MusikTheater an der Wien offers a world premiere (after 235 years) of Salieri’s Kublai, Grand Khan of Tartary, Volksoper Wien has 3 different shows in repertoire, Wiener Staatsoper proposes 2 operas and a ballet, and those interested in opera for young audiences may catch Die Wiener Taschenoper’s Snow White and Musiktheater an der Wien’s Hamed und Sherifa at the Kammeroper. In addition, our close-by member Slovak National Opera invites you on an excursion to Bratislava for Eugen Suchoñ’s seldom heard Svätopluk.
But at the heart of the conference are the panels dealing with such topics as Dance scenes in opera, a World Café on the relationship between outreach and audience development, a Conversation with young audiences or From artist to artistic leader Ied by Sir David Pountney. It will be a pleasure to widen our attendees with representatives from the Ballet world, alongside our Fundraising forum, our Marketing & Communications forum and our Education forum. We thank Reseo for their collaboration and look forward to the results of their research on participatory work and non-standard programming.
With such a diverse and inspiring selection, there is no doubt you'll find many sessions to capture your attention. The conference is not only an opportunity for information exchange and discussions on co-productions but also a chance to meet colleagues. Don't miss the excellent Volksoper Opera Studio recital!
