Autumn Conference in Parma: Opera Pilgrimage

Opera Europa's autumn conference took place during Festival Verdi in Parma between 12 and 15 October 2017 and was attended by 330 delegates from all over the world.

The theme of Opera Pilgimage may be inspired by the special ambiance of a festival devoted to a great composer, as with Bayreuth and Pesaro, but it resonates for any theatre that aspires to make itself a destination which demands to be visited. Or indeed to an initiative like OperaVision which has been created to drive visitors to a digital destination.
