New IMZ Member: Operabase
Arts Consolidated who own the largest operatic platform, Operabase, have expanded their offering to include video streaming service CueTV.
Operabase has over 1.5 million visitors per year and over 500,000 performances on file. It is a global platform that has serviced the opera industry since 1996 by providing tools to artists, agents and arts organisations.
Opera and classical music lovers can access videos, live streams, VOD links as well as box office ticket links. The platform is accessible in 27 languages and displays information on the previous, current and future seasons.
For arts organisations, one of the biggest draws is the casting tool that has recorded up to 8000 searches a month. The tool is invaluable in future season planning and finding last-minute replacements. The ability to tailor a search and easily contact both artists and their agents makes the casting process more efficient.
The recently launched streaming platform CueTV offers the best seat in the house to watch an extensive catalogue of high-quality and high-definition opera, classical music and ballet productions from distinguished opera companies, festivals, and venues worldwide. The service kicked off its live streaming with Siberia from Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and followed with Francesca da Rimini from the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
CueTV is available in 5 languages on multiple platforms, allowing viewers to watch on their smartphones, smartTVs or desktops. Viewers can immerse themselves in classic productions, audience favourites and hidden gems, with new titles added weekly to ensure that you’re #AlwaysOnCue.
