The Opera Platform

The Opera Platform launches today to provide a resource for all those interested in Opera.

The Opera Platform

The website will be available in three languages – English, French and German – and will offer free content, rich in information: full opera performances and extracts; synopses and background material; artist interviews and behind-the scenes documentaries. The opera houses of Europe invite you to discover their archives and their current productions.

The European opera season of the platform will add at least one new opera per month, subtitled in six languages – English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish – and available on demand for six months. New additional content will regularly enrich the offer.

The Opera Platform is launched with the live transmission from Madrid’s Teatro Real of La traviata. Further showcase operas in the launch month will include Król Roger from Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Kullervo from Finnish National Opera Helsinki and Valentina from Latvian National Opera Riga.
