Escena Marketplace wins Seed of Start Up Chile

The first Latin American online platform for sales and leasing of productions starts its second phase of development, expanding its services and technological possibilities.

Escena Marketplace is the first international digital platform that promotes classical productions already premiered, encouraging circulation between theatres generating a secondary market. With a network of theatres around the world supporting the quality and number of opera and ballet productions available, the vision of Escena is to provide information to facilitate the circulation of works and thus generate more classical content in Latin American theatres.

Escena seeks to change the paradigm of the commercialization of works in Latin America. Thanks to technology and internet, the offer of opera and ballet of our theaters will be available and open, so that many new theatres that are not currently producing this type of shows, or are doing it incipiently, can access the offer in a more efficient and economic way and thus enter the circulation network. It also helps theatres on the platform to generate extra incomes thanks to the sale or rent of productions that are currently stored in warehouses waiting to be re-premiered “says Alejandra Martí, Co-Founder of Escena and Executive Director of OLA.
