Autumn Conference in Parma: Opera Pilgrimage

Opera Europa's autumn conference in Parma which will take place during Festival Verdi between 12 and 15 October 2017 and which includes a choice of four operas in three different theatres during four days.

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 The Opera Platform which has been created to drive visitors to a digital destination.

We believe that this conference will therefore be of interest to General and Artistic Directors, and also to those working in Education, Finance, Fundraising and Marketing.

Opera Vision for The Opera Platform

The Creative Europe Programme of the European Union has shown its faith in Opera Europa’s dedicated group
of partners by offering renewed support which will enable us to develop and expand the digital project launched
over two years ago into something altogether more wide-reaching during the years ahead.

The successful bid is a tribute to the perseverance of existing partners, the courage of new partners, and to the industry of our small dedicated team. It is also a challenge. The task is to build on what we have learned during the past three years and to create a resource which truly presents a European Opera Season with the capacity to reach the world.
