Guaranteed professional

FEDORA is working in close collaboration with multiple partner organisations in the pre-selection process of applications:

Opera Europa - the Professional Association of Opera Houses and Festivals in Europe, the leading professional network representing over 200 opera companies and opera festivals in 43 different European countries and RESEO - the European Network for opera, music, dance and education which brings together organisations and artists to promote innovation and equal access to creativity.

All opera and ballet applications received are assessed by Opera Europa under the direction of Nicholas Payne, director of Opera Europa.
Education projects are pre-selected jointly by RESEO, under the direction of Rhian Hutchings, chair of RESEO, and Mr Bernard Foccroulle, former director of the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie and of Festival d'Aix-en-Provence.
