Opera Festival Teplice

The Teplice Opera Festival is a young innovative European initiative: ten cooperation partners from six different European States have come together to realize the idea of a new opera festival.

In the historical theatre of the city of Teplice, performances of precious and glittering music theatrical gems from the inexhaustible European opera repertoire will be held, in some cases for the first time since their premieres in previous centuries. Many of these works were neglected for their supposed irrelevance during the subsequent political events of past eras. Today, with Europe reawakening and reinventing its significance, these important works of music theatre represent a treasure trove of theories, utopias and fertile intra-European cross connections. Apart from Teplice, performances will also be held in other European locations that clearly reflect Europe's destiny.

Plans include the scenic and semi-staged presentation of a series of performances of both serious and light-hearted subjects between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. In the context of a master class, the festival aims to introduce vocal students from all over Europe to the international opera stage, alongside renowned singing personalities. The artistic forum will be complemented by an international conference devoted to scientific, political and historical issues in relation to the world of the arts.
