Celebrating the first edition of World Opera Day
On October 25th, 2019 the first World Opera Day was launched by Opera Europa, OPERA America and Ópera Latinoamérica with the support of national and international cultural organisations that FEDORA is delighted to be part of.
The date of October 25th was chosen as a celebration of the birthdays of Georges Bizet, composer of Carmen, and Johann Strauss II, composer of Die Fledermaus, who have contributed greatly known and loved works to the repertoire.
On this day, opera companies around the world built the awareness campaign through live and online activities and events. OperaVision, the free streaming platform supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, celebrated World Opera Day with streams of Carmen from National Centre for Performing Arts Beijing and Die Fledermaus from Vienna State Opera.
