Orlando Opera delighted

On 5 April in Gorizia and on 7 April in Ossiach our singers and the Orchestra Purpur, conducted by Michael Fendre, delighted the audience and got standing ovations. The director Vincent van den Elshout and the costume and scene designer Emilie Lauwers won especially high praise for the unique and almost bizarre staging, which was inspired by Monty Python's "Holy Grail".

Orlando's Opera Diary

Instalment on Purpur's Facebook page!

07.03.2014
Dear Diary!
If you talked to me, you could tell me, who has ripped out one of your pages. I will find the doer and bring him to justice! After all I am Orlando - going wild!

Dear Diary!
I have got great news: Next week the production team goes to Opatija in Croatia, hometown of the project partner Festival Kvarner. In the beginning of April we move then to Gorizia in Italy, where the opera premieres on 5 April. I hope, there is more sun at the Adriatic sea and the maritime air brings Angelica to her senses! Always this diffuse light in Ossiach - probably that's the reason why she hasn't fallen for me yet!

What's news?

Quite a bit! Last week Michael Fendre visited Brussels for a EU network meeting and returned with several new ideas and contacts. Furthermore the EOS project will get a new partner, the Piccolo Festival in Friuli-Venezia-Guglia, represented by Gabriele Ribis, who is already a partner of ad libitum in the Alps Adriatic Culture Forum platform. Beforehand, the European Commission has to accept the corresponding amendment to the grant agreement but we are confident, especially as the Piccolo Festival would be a great gain for the project.

And, last but not least, there are only three days left, until the production team, the Orchestra Purpur and all the singers will arrive in Ossiach to start the production of the Orlando Paladino opera, which premieres at Piccolo Festival in Gorizia on 05/04 and is repeated in Alban Berg Concert Hall in Stift Ossiach on 07/04/2014. Starting with 28/02, we keep you updated about all the proceedings and news of the production. The Opera's Diary will be published right here in this bulletin.

Alps Adriatic Culture Forum

In Opatija the first meeting of the board founder of the regional cultural cooperation took place. As an initiative of the Festival Kvarner, the forum was founded on 16 December with the aim to strengthen cultural cooperation in the Alps-Adriatic region. To successfully implement the major cultural projects in the period 2014-2020, the festival representatives from Slovenia, Italy, Austria and Croatia have joined forces in order to increase their chances to get further EU fundings. The representatives are Gabriele Ribis (Italy, Piccolo Festival FVG), Michael Fendre (Austria, ad libitum), Vjekoslav Martinko and Riccardo Marussi (Croatia, Festival Kvarner) and Klemen Ramovs (Slovenia, Festival Seviqc Brezice) .
