OPERA VISION

The Opera Europa association and over thirty opera houses from eighteen countries have joined forces and, after the success of The Opera Platform, have developed the OperaVision project, with a contribution from the EU programme Creative Europe. National Theatre Brno, which will broadcast three opera productions by Leoš Janáček live to the whole world through Opera Vision in 2018-2020, is also a part of it.

Our first contribution was a live stream of a performance of Janáček´s The Cunning Little Vixen on 18th November 2018 as part of the Janáček Brno 2018 festival. During the broadcast and over the following six months, the production was viewed on Opera Vision by more than seventeen thousand people from all over the world. Even while the stream was still taking place we received many beautiful reviews, and not only from the Czech Republic, but also from the USA, South Korea, and other countries.

The next broadcast will feature one of Leoš Janáček’s most famous operas, Jenůfa, whose production, directed by Martin Glaser and with music direction by Marko Ivanović, will be broadcast from the Janáček Theatre on 2nd October 2019. Partner of this project is Czech Television.

Apart from broadcasting productions from leading opera houses, OperaVision offers a wide range of excerpts from opera performances, interviews and documentaries via its web platform, as well as the chance to get a detailed insight into the four centuries of existence of this art form. For opera enthusiasts it provides an excellent opportunity not only to view many interesting productions but also expand one’s knowledge of this unique genre.

The Opera Academy section provides access to a wide range of audio-visual resources, ranging from short clips from rehearsals up to interviews with important personalities, where young spectators, their parents and their teachers can discover the colourful world of opera via content arranged for different age groups.
