Opera Europa’s membership is united in its aim to produce opera, but approaches it in diverse ways. Breakout sessions will look at repertoire and stagione systems and the success of festivals. The development of the Ensemble is a major theme at conference, and we are introducing a reflection on the place of dance in our theatres. Splitting these topics into separate groups should afford us the opportunity of looking more in depth at the different issues confronting our members.
Since I have been Director of Opera, I have become increasingly aware of the work done by many of our partner organisations and have invited two of them, Culture Action Europe and Pearle, to Wiesbaden to present their organisations and answer members questions.
And finally dear members, at conference, we all too often gravitate towards the colleagues we know, so we want to challenge you by introducing an Open Space session to hear from our members what Opera Europa can do for you.
I hope to see you all in the beautiful Wiesbaden theatre to enjoy a Trittico directed by Uwe Laufenberg, for a relaxed time together and some stimulating debate.
