AMAZE ME, Opera for young audiences in Europe

Discover a cutting-edge art form! Be inspired by an intriguing and colourful insight into amazing productions for young audiences throughout Europe.  

RESEO, the European Network for Opera and Dance Education, issued on 4 April 2013 the first-ever European publication on Opera for young audiences: Amaze me. 

Discover a European best of of productions for young audiences, both of new creations and repertoire revisited. Of well known stories and contemporary subject matters. Of participatory operas, cross-arts adventures, small formats and main-stage productions. Find out more about productions for teens, for children, and even for toddlers. And most often, it is a production that is of interest to all ages, in which every audience member will be swept away by a different sense of wonder, where quality is revealed. 

This book is a showcase of one of the most rapidly evolving sectors in the domain of opera, which is breaking free of preconceptions and experimenting new ways of creating operatic works: that of productions for young audiences. Strangely, however, visibility seems to be lacking on European level. Maybe it is a book like this that was lacking to date?
