The Opera Platform - Free Live and On demand!

No need to be a member, No account needed, Just visit and Enjoy !!

The Opera Platform is an online platform for the promotion and enjoyment of opera. It is designed to appeal equally to those who already love opera and to those who may be tempted to try it for the first time.

The Opera Platform will offer a range of content from the most popular titles to the most innovative:

■ a showcase complete opera each month from one of 15 partner theatres

■ tantalising highlights from productions throughout Europe

curated documentary material setting operas and opera houses within a wider cultural context

■ a rich archive bringing history to life for today’s audiences

■ a forum for developing technical capabilities

The Opera Platform is a partnership between Opera Europa, representing 155 opera companies and festivals; the cultural broadcasting channel ARTE; and 15 carefully selected theatres from across Europe. It is supported by the EC’s Creative Europe programme and by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). It welcomes contributions from all those committed to sharing opera with a wider public.

The Opera Platform was launched in May 2015 with four showcase productions and a kaleidoscope of short-form material celebrating the dazzling variety of opera across Europe. 

Every opera producer, large or small, is encouraged to participate in this gathering of those committed to bring opera to a wider audience. It is in your company’s interest to add its unique voice. It is in opera’s interest to sing with a common voice.

The Opera Platform  is indeed an ambitious new venture for our network. This platform is part of a broader framework,  which, between now and the end of 2017, builds on our ambitions to develop the opera sector in Europe in a number of ways: by helping the opera professionals develop in the digital age and by creating high-profile public platforms to encourage access to opera for all. Through all its activities, Opera Europa strives to put the work of all its members at the core of a world stage.
