Referencing over 350 opera companies’ activities for the past 10 seasons, with detailed artistic team and casts, Operabook is a powerful independent search engine which generates results about 30.000 productions of 3.500 titles featuring 42.000 artists.
For just over a year now, Opera Europa has offered its entire membership access to our new customised tool. With the active support of Artistic Director champions and our Artistic Administration & Producing forum, Operabook has grown to become an invaluable support for opera professionals. Available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, the straight-forward interface shows great reliability in its richness of information and ease of use in its flexible presentation.
Future New Productions
Opera Europa’s famous yet secret Future New Productions database is housed in a private section of Operabook. As per the previous system, only selected staff from each member opera company may have access to the shared artistic projects for the next few seasons, in order to facilitate collaborations and co-productions.
To browse other companies’ plans for upcoming years, simply visit the FUTURE NEW PRODUCTIONS tab and enter your search criteria – by company, composer, title or simply by new work.
To add your own projects – whether confirmed or just at an early development stage, visit MY PRODUCTIONS and choose Future New Productions rather than Past and Current Productions.
If you do not see these options, your permissions may not be activated for this private and sensitive information. Please contact Susanna for help!
Opera Europa’s next Co-production Marketplace will take place on 21 May 2021. Make sure you update your Future New Productions before then!
All members may search for productions available for rent/for sale in the main PERFORMANCES menu.
Each member may simply tick a box to indicate that a production is available for rent or for sale through the MY PRODUCTIONS tab; and can add illustrations, photos, plans, and links in the Resources tab and a contact person in the Additional information tab. For the moment, the search engine lacks sufficient results. May we invite you to update your company’s productions?
Do you need help updating your list of productions available for rent/for sale? Please contact Susanna.

Any artist with a named role in a production by the 350 opera companies referenced will find an entry on Operabook. That artist’s full repertoire performed in these companies will be listed, along with representation information.
Thanks to partnerships with classicalmusicartists.com by IAMA (International Artists Managers Association) and AEAA (Association Européenne des Agents Artistiques), OMAI (Opera Managers Association International) and AFAA (Association Française des Agents Artistiques), Operabook is regularly kept up to date with correct representation information for the artists, facilitating direct contact with the correct agent.
We have recently opened Operabook to extra types of productions, the better to represent the work done by our companies and the diversity of artists in the field: audio-visual performances, recordings, Young Artist Programmes/Opera Studio performances…
Beyond being a helpful engine to find artists, their repertoire, their experience and their contact details, Operabook is also a production database.
Our teams strive to keep the information as up to date as possible, and their work would benefit from your support.
Simply convey any changes in casting and programming, by including the address in internal production mailing lists and press lists, to email@example.com.
