One of the primary purposes of our creation company is to encourage composers and librettists to write new forms of opera. Through this recurring event, we have the unique opportunity to hear excerpts from the operas that these artists are working on, as they share the creative process of their writing projects with us. In addition to fostering the emergence of new works and familiarizing young singers and musicians with these new forms of expression, this meeting with the new generation shows the public the multitude of styles, witnesses to an era. The creative and educational nature of this event brings together presenters, professionals, teachers and creators and opens the door to a young new audience.
