OperaVision celebrates over 400 years of opera during 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, presenting within the initial three months the first opera still known today – Monteverdi’s Orfeo – and award-winning opera The Second Violinist by Donnacha Dennehy, first presented in 2017.
OperaVision is the free streaming platform powered by Opera Europa, with 30 partners from 18 countries and the support of the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
Over the coming twelve months, the online platform will offer great masterpieces of the repertory, as well as less familiar works and contemporary operas. Verdi’s Aida and La traviata, Bolcom’s Dinner At Eight, Puccini’s Tosca and Turandot, Janáček’s Cunning Little Vixen, Offenbach’s Blaubart and Les contes d’Hoffmann, Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Gotovac’s Ero The Joker will complement the already available videos: Wagner’s Ring, Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande, Handel’s Semele and many others.
For people just discovering the fascinating world of opera, the New to Opera section has helpful tips to navigate the vocabulary and find some general historical lines.
Children will be entertained during their winter holidays: Hänsel und Gretel goes online later in December, and soon to come are activity guides to help them find their voice.
At the same time, a growing choice of content is available in the Library with extracts and interviews offering snapshots of great moments, and Stories are there to delve into specific themes.
Watch live streams as the operas themselves unfold in the opera house. View your favourite performances, subtitled, on demand. Learn about the art form and specific productions by browsing the richly populated digital library, stories, and articles. Discover resources for young audiences and for artistic career development. In English, French, and German, thoughtfully curated, and free to browse and explore.
