During the upcoming weeks and months, ARTE Concert, ARTE’s cross-genre digital music programme ( will be responding to the latest Europe-wide lockdown by stepping up its support for Europe’s arts and culture scene.

Launched in partnership with some of the hardest hit institutions, including theatres, orchestras and other creatives, ARTE’s #WeReStillOpen campaign will endeavour to create a top-notch programme comprising not just live- or rendezvous-streamed events, but also new formats that have yet to be developed.

One of the flagships of the campaign is the third ARTE Opera Season, a partnership with twenty-one of Europe’s leading opera houses and festivals, which makes at least one outstanding new production freely available online every month. The current ARTE Opera Season presents in November Rameau’s opera “Hippolyte et Aricie” live from the Opéra Comique in Paris and the premiere of “Mahler/Live”, the inaugural choreography of Martin Schläpfer.

In December: Andreas Homoki’s staging of Verdi’s "Simon Boccanegra" from the Opernhaus Zurich and Calixto Bieitos’ interpretation of Wagner’s "Lohengrin" from the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, followed in the spring of 2021 by Bedřich Smetana’s "Dalibor" from the Prague State Opera.

Alongside the ARTE Opera season, ARTE’s pursuit of this goal will entail the continuation of the popular format “Hope@Home”, focusing this time on the young artists generation, as well as resuming its European DJ-set series UnitedWeStream.
