About us

Opera Network began from an idea with Carla Zanin, now its President, as an International Center for professional training in the field of performing arts mainly in the Musical Theatre, Opera and Dance with forays into the Poetry, Fine and Visual Arts. It became a Cultural Association in April 2015 with Paolo Bellocci as Artistic Director and Federico Bardazzi as Music Director. ON carries out training projects for artistic professionals such as singers, instrumentalists, dancers, directors, and for technicians such as lighting designers, virtual scenographers, set and costume designers, sound technicians, stage directors, camera operators and many others. In its name is its mission: Opera Network is the “network for the Opera”, that means to work with several qualified international partners to research, create, develop and produce specific innovative projects that combine Philologie and New Technologies. >> read more
