" Theatres of the World "
WEB CONFERENCE CHAIRED BY KENNETH ZAMMIT TABONA
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF TEATRU MANOEL
AS PART OF 'EUROPEAN OPERA DAYS'
ON SATURDAY MAY 7TH 2016 AT 1100HRS (CEST)

INGLESE: Each year on the weekend closest to 9 May (Europe Day), opera houses in Europe and beyond open their doors to new and existing audiences to celebrate the art of opera and the talent of those who make it. Their aim is to help bring opera into the mainstream of cultural practice and to enhance its appreciation in today’s society.

Bringing European Opera Days at the Aurora has been in the pipeline for a few years. In active and direct contact with personnel from the mother-company Opera Europa, the Aurora Opera House feels the time is ripe to have Malta hosting, for the first time ever, events that constitute part of European Opera Days. To this end, the Aurora Opera House has been officially appointed as a National Coordinator of European Opera Days for Malta.

In sync with the theme of European Opera Days 2016, and in line with the values of networking promulgated by this initiative, the Aurora Opera House is proud to organise the international web-conference about opera and opera houses - Theatres of the World.

Web-Conference: Theatres of the World
Saturday 7th May 2016 | 1100hrs (CEST) | Aurora Opera House, main auditorium.


Panels will convene in different houses and communicate via the Internet. The web conference, entitled Theatre of the World (after the main theme of EOD2016), will be chaired by Kenneth Zammit Tabona, Artistic Director of the Manoel Theatre from Malta’s own 1732 national opera house. It is set to tackle the new challenges faced by different opera houses operating in different scenarios and in different countries, in itself a fine example of diversity in the supply world of arts.

Interested participating opera houses are to email Matthew on teatruaurora@leone.org.mt. at the Aurora Opera House. The general public may be able to follow the live conversation via << Teatru Aurora >> youtube channel or www.teatruaurora.com.

European Opera Days serve to draw new audiences to our opera houses, but they also serve to enhance networking amongst us. Therefore, we would like to show with this web conference that networking is easy, and networking is the way forward.

We are taking the theme of European Opera Days 2016 as the main topic of this web conference: Theatres of the World. We are interested in discussing the main challenges of theatres that operate on different working and financial models, different niches, different target audiences and different projections.

 

Get Connected

It is very easy to get connected. Here are a few simple steps:
