“Opera Out of Opera 2” announces the call for ideas to create artistic works for immersive rooms dedicated to opera performances: Puccini’s “La Bohème” and Mozart’s Opera Trilogy: “The Marriage of Figaro,” “Don Giovanni,” and “Così fan tutte.”

The immersive room/art installation will function as a captivating space, guiding spectators through the journey undertaken to engage young audiences in the project. By involving them as active participants, the spectators will be immersed in the universe of the work with which they will come into contact, enhancing their enjoyment and experience during the live performance and bringing them closer to the world of opera.

We welcome submissions from all imaginative individuals to share their ideas and actively participate in bringing this immersive space to life. Together, let’s explore new frontiers in artistic expression and enhance engagement with opera.

The selected works will form the basis for immersive rooms that audiences will visit before the scheduled operas as part of the project, included in OOO2 app and website and disseminated within our social media as well in all partners’ communication streams, reaching a wide international context.

“Opera Out of Opera 2” (OOO2) is a collaborative project co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Commission. Its aim is to re-launch opera and reintroduce it to new, younger generations.
