International Brazilian Opera Company will present scenes from four new operas by composers João MacDowell, Thiago Tiberio and Luigi Porto.
There is no limit to what can be done in new opera, but how far can they go? Maybe you can help…
LUIGI PORTO AT THE PIANO
At iBoc they aim to mix ideas from both Brazilian and international artists to create new approaches for the genre. iBoc’s core team has members from Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Italy, Portugal and the United States and they hope to have even more diversity as their team grows. Through collaboration and shared perspectives, they believe opera can be relevant to large audiences.
They also believe that opera is the multimedia event of the future. Not only does opera unite all art forms, the genre has a lot of potential for creative development. Most opera companies now have access to contemporary performance techniques, yet they keep repeating a repertoire that was written in the 19th century. The iBoc creative team consists of professional composers, singers, musicians, film-makers, mixed media artists, choreographers and performance artists. They are dedicated to producing unique and refreshing performances.
