The 25th of October will be the first World Opera day, an initative led by international networks such as Opera Europa, OPERA America and Opera Latinoamerica.
World Opera Day was conceived inside the environment of World Opera Forum hosted in Teatro Real of Madrid back in 2018 with the aim of broadening the positive and effective value of the operatic genre inside the community. Opera plays a big role in the construction of tolerance, comprehension, open-mindness and cultural interchange, touching everyone’s feelings and universal values.
Numerous are the events organised all over the world, therefore Brescia will support this celebration with a particular initiative promoted by the Foundation of Teatro Grande – partner of Opera Europa – in collaboration with Gruppo Brescia Mobilità. In line with the goals that the Foundation has been promoting for years, in this special day, Opera will spread all over the city in order to reach the most diverse public as a universal genre suitable for all.
On Friday 25th October, from 15:00 to 19:00 the most well known world opera arias will resound from the terrace of Teatro Grande beside Corso Zanardelli. In the meantime, from 8:00 a.m to 08:00 p.m. music and voices will resonate in all metropolitan stations, famous arias will be ideally moved from town centre to all the city.
Anyone who desire to partecipate can do it by posting on social medias any content dedicated to Opera and sharing it with the official hashtag #WorldOperaDay.
