Danish Tour of OperaUpClose
Award-winning London based opera company OperaUpClose are planning a tour of Denmark produced by Copenhagen based producer and organizer Miolto Arts & Music.
“OperaUpClose is leading an artistic revolution” The Sunday Times
Representatives from both companies met for the first time in London during a performance of OperaUpClose’s La bohème at the Cock Tavern Theatre. We were very excited to discover our shared vision and passion for ‘opera for everyone’, and as we exchanged plans for the future, we developed the idea of bringing this prizewinning production on a tour of Denmark.
Throughout 2016 we have worked intensively on all the elements necessary for an international tour, amongst others timetables, budgets, dialogues with UK and Danish Arts Councils for financial support, etc.
We are now entering into the final phases of planning and fundraising that will lead to a tour of Denmark in the 2018/19 season. We intend this tour to be the first of many productions on which the two companies will collaborate.
We, at OperaUpClose and Miolto Arts & Music, are extremely grateful to DUCC for giving us the opportunity to present our common vision and perform a few musical extracts from the production at the Annual Dinner in London, May 11th 2017.
