Description

In order to guarantee the future of opera and ballet, the next generation of artists needs to be supported as advocated by Rolf Liebermann. In times of diminishing public funding, FEDORA has established four prizes that are awarded to promising teams who collaborate on the creation of new opera or ballet co-productions, and on the involvement and education of new and young audiences.

FEDORA’s European network of opera houses, festivals and ballet companies comprises 95 members in 25 countries, of which 26 are Platform Members in 14 countries.

Testimonial from Irish Partner

Our participation in the Fedora Platform has enabled us to bring opera to new audiences. Fedora supported the presentation of Mozart’s The Opera Director in 2018. This production featured a full orchestra and was presented free of charge at the Gaiety Theatre. In 2019, we presented The Deadly World of Opera, an introduction to opera with four singers and one pianist, in five community centres in the Dublin area. In 2020 Fedora supported our Friday Opera Sessions – a series of free concerts presented online. The Fedora Platform also encourages and supports attendance at key conferences and networking events, an important component in the development of the company.’
