Notes:

We understand opera as a community building effort.

As we create an environment for composers to develop new works,

we are bringing together professionals and amateurs to collaborate on full productions.  

We are educating new performers

and providing opportunities for experimentation to seasoned ones.

Iboc Chorus, Ensemble and Orchestra

have the dual educational goal

of Musical practice and cultural experimentation.

 

IBOC services the Brazilian community

by providing a positive image of the culture

in a highly accomplished and professional environment.

IBOC services the international audience

by providing content that is fresh and relevant

in a production environment of innovative sustainable solutions to the genre.

VISION

We believe that Opera is the multimedia event of the future.

The genre unites all art forms,

providing an experience that has no parallel.


Four stage development plan for new productions:

1.

Curate creative collaborations

add creative feedback in the writing and development process.

2.

Concert Performances

of new works

for revision and audio recordings.

3 .

Staging production

including DVD recording

4. Touring production

and licensing

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.

HOW

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.
