Opera for our time

As society changes, so too does the opera that it creates. In a contemporary Europe united in diversity, OperaVision aims to celebrate the variety of new works being composed and performed today and to share them as widely as possible. 

For over four centuries, opera has continually reinvented itself by experimenting with new ideas and adapting to evolving tastes. Opera is a product of its time. Every year, scores of new operas are composed and commissioned, with some companies and festivals trying to premiere at least one new title each season. The variety of works being written today is almost inexhaustible but they all share a common desire to express something of our contemporary culture and concerns.
