Opera Now

Taking advantage of the premiere of Dido Reloaded / Go, Aeneas, go!Òpera de Butxaca i Nova Creació (OBNC) wishes once more to work to promote the creation of new lyric compositions by our young creators through the organization of a workshop-seminar “Òpera ara” (Opera Now).

Over the space of six days four teams each made up of a composer and a libretto writer will take the first steps towards the composition of a new short piece of opera starting out from certain formal premises on the common theme of CARMEN. Experts in the field of opera and music theatre will be on hand as tutors and there will be the possibility of trying out the first work directly with professional singers and musicians. The pieces will keep developing and growing in future encounters of the creators over the coming year with the aim to have them premiered all together in November 2015.

The chosen artistic teams of dramaturge-composer are:

Marc Angelet & Clara Peya

Jordi Oriol & Carles Pedragosa

Marc Artigau & Lucas Peire

Helena Tornero & Mischa Tangian
