A new international day to celebrate: World Opera DayThe International Theatre Institute ITI congratulates the Opera Europa, OPERA America and Ópera LatinoAmerica for the launch of World Opera Day on 25 October 2019 during an event held in Strasbourg (France) and Karlsruhe (Germany). It recommends to the Centres of ITI to assist Opera in their countries with the know-how of World Theatre Day and International Dance Day that the Centre may have.
The first ever World Opera Day will be held on 25 October 2019, with an international social media campaign and local events shining the light on Opera’s contribution to citizens' wellbeing. The three main opera associations join forces with encouragement from UNESCO and the International Theatre Institute to remind people of the role of artistic expression and creativity.
To engage with the initiative, we invite our members to join the World Opera Day social media campaign via their channels. Gather and publish 30 second videos showing the benefit of opera: young and dynamic singers or musicians that can communicate their enthusiasm for opera, testimonies of children who were involved in one of your educational programmes. On World Opera Day, publish these videos and interesting World Opera Day events on your channels with the hashtag #WorldOperaDay.
