Creating new opera with an inclusive approach
Arranged by GöteborgsOperan and ShareMusic & Performing Arts
Louis De Geer Konsert & Kongress
Thursday May 25, 15:00-15:45
In 2015, GöteborgsOperan and ShareMusic & Performing Arts embarked on a bold venture: to commission and stage an opera with an artistic team and cast comprising disabled and non-disabled artists. The result is Shanghai, a new opera.
Our aim is to share tools and approached we’ve used in making Shanghai, concrete examples of how we’ve worked, from casting to creating to rehearsing. We also invite you to join an important conversation about inclusive artistic approaches, opera and music theatre.
