“Opera is all about communicating to an audience, but it needs to connect with new ones and to communicate to existing ones in fresh ways. Connecting through digital is not just about marketing, it’s a creative imperative which should energise and involve everyone in an opera house and help to develop and refresh the art form in the twenty-first century. That’s the bold and challenging ambition we aim to address in Prague this September!”
Peter Maniura
