The severe crisis of the Covid 19 has forced theaters to close their doors without an opening date, artists to confine themselves to their homes without being able to carry out their activities and performances, and creators to turn to digital and take advantage of this time of confinement. to innovate. What actions and strategies are theaters taking today in times of extreme challenge? How is the return of the theaters expected? How will audiences behave in the future? 


We will reflect on all these topics with a broad perspective with our 4 panelists who accompany us from their different countries: Brazil, Spain, Mexico and Chile in a new chapter of Academia iF. 


Guests: Joan Matabosch, Artistic Director of Teatro Real de Madrid; Carmen Gloria Larenas, General Director of Municipal de Santiago; Alonso Escalante, Artistic Director of Ópera de Bellas Artes, Mexico; and Flavia Furtado, Executive Director of Festival Amazonas de Ópera, Brazil.


Moderator: Alejandra Martí, Executive Director of Ópera Latinoamérica, Chile.
