4. Touring production
Many opera companies throughout the world have access 21st-century performance technology but are still largely tied to the 19th-century repertoire. We believe that this is a great moment for the creation of innovative repertoire that is relevant to third-millennium audiences. We aim to channel the aesthetic contributions of a broad historical and cultural background into a new way of perceiving the genre.
We are creating an international network of artists and producers, connecting professionals and companies, aiming to establish a touring platform that wil be usable to all creators while connecting new audiences.
We are experimenting with broad contemporary theater structures, seeking the rituals that once originated drama.
Our focus is on original operas starting with small casts and intimate performances and gradually developing to larger projects
We are creating portable operas that can travel anywhere and inspire all audiences at affordable prices
We are moving towards the future of stage directing
We are committed to creating a global opera theater that interconnects different nations. By establishing a working relationship with the Brazilian branch of the company we plan to develop a collaboration between artists based in NY and Brazil and also travel in both directions with full productions
We are committed to creating more with less
We want to challenge the limits of the theatrical experience, creating immersive experiences and bringing artists closer to their audiences.
We are bringing concepts from a wide range of realms to the opera genre. This includes film sound design, pop culture, Virtual Reality technologies and new philosophies of performance.
