FEDORA Prizes, Nominee

Technological developments are radically changing the way we live our lives. Simultaneously, traditional power structures and ideas about colour and gender identity are being increasingly questioned. What does a changing world mean for our sense of identity, and how does our sense of identity impact the world?

On the topic of Technology, Identity and Change, the third night of the Opera Forward Festival will preview the new Van der Aa opera Upload, Nominee of the FEDORA - GENERALI Prize for Opera 2020, promising enriching musical performances and stimulating discussions.

Register now for Upload's session on Saturday, March 20th at 7:30pm.

With new works by leading artists as well as emerging talents from the Netherlands, the OFF Festival explores the future of opera by building bridges between different generations and disciplines. Asking the central question "Where do we go from here?”, OFF will present new performances, music sessions and talks from 18 to 21 March 2021 for free.
