Conference

Thoughts from Parma

Many among the 330 or so delegates would vote for Parma as one of the most successful conferences in Opera Europa’s history. Sunny autumn weather, delicious local food, and a choice of four Verdi operas combined with the warm hospitality of Teatro Regio to provide the perfect setting for lively debate about topical issues and the guiding theme of Opera Pilgrimage. An opening day planned in conjunction with our friends at Fedora brought together an especially strong representation from marketing and fundraising delegates.

OperaVision so far

Opera Europa has a new streaming platform, OperaVision. Replacing The Opera Platform, this new site offers enriched content drawn from a more diverse partnership; the number of theatre partners has doubled to 30, and 60% of partners are new. The content aims to be more varied (full-length and short-form), inclusive (musical theatre in many forms) and regular (an average of two new streams per month). After four months of intense work on construction, the Opera Europa team unveiled OperaVision on 12 October in Parma.
