Opera Europa: Fundraising, Audiovisual Media, and Artistic Administration Forums

During the second semester of 2018 Opera Europa, the European Theatre Association that brings together more than 150 opera houses in the old continent, as is tradition, will develop specialized forums, to which the members of Ópera Latinoamérica have special benefits.


In partnership with Deloitte Madrid, the Forum conducted a survey among the different opera houses in Europe on the different models of fundraising, and is currently evaluating the motivations of corporate sponsorship, as well as the reasons of the large companies that decide Do not patronize the opera.

The next forum will take place in the framework of the autumn conference of Opera Europa in Parma (12th-15th October), preceded by the FEDORA General Assembly on October 11th.
