Opera and classical music in heritage areas of the Centro Region

A professional opera company will tour the Central Region with a program that includes the epic Samson and Delilah, the drama Madama Butterfly, a Stabat Mater from Pergolesi, Choirs and the Verdi Requiem, among many other proposals. The OPERA HERITAGE initiative O.P. (US) is back and starts this year in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, on August 15th, continues through Pinhel, Leiria, Coimbra, Batalha and ends in Viseu, at the end of September. The presentations are all free of charge.

O.P. (US) – OPERA ON HERITAGE presents reference works of the History of Music, in an artistic-cultural script that unites the municipalities of Batalha, Leiria, Viseu, Pinhel, Vila Nova de Foz Côa and the University of Coimbra. Information about the entire project available on the initiative’s website and facebook.

With the artistic direction of José Ferreira Lobo, the third edition of this first cycle O.P. (US) – OPERA AT HERITAGE proposes, besides the presentation of operas in scenic and concert version, symphonic and chamber choral music; a heritage discovery program. Guided tours and lectures, always in conjunction with musical events, in line with a regional strategy for preserving cultural and natural values ​​and also for enhancing cultural tourism, are also part of this project.

O.P. (US) – OPERA ON HERITAGE brings together a symphony orchestra, soloists and international choirs and ballet, together with unique and collective community elements, as a way of contributing to the socio-cultural and formative development, local and regional. In the program of creation and formation of audiences stands out the inclusion of young artists, whose valorization of their career is difficult due to the scarcity of events of this nature, outside the big centers.
