What is RESEO?
For over 15 years, RESEO has been the unique European network for education, participation and creative learning in opera and dance.
From large opera organisations to small companies, our members are driven by the desire to widen access, awaken curiosity, and create a connection with opera and dance for everyone!
Spread across 21 countries in Europe and beyond, RESEO’s members form a diverse yet coherent network, experimenting with new concepts, sharing ideas, learning and working together. The network supports them in their overarching aim to firmly anchor opera into their local contexts and enhance their communities’ sense of ownership.
A catalyst for development in the sector, RESEO creates a unique European working space, providing tools such as thematic conferences, invitations to innovative projects, specialist trainings, promotion of opera for children, research studies and publications.
RESEO is also active in the field of advocacy for opera and dance education and audience development towards the European institutions.
A non-profit organisation with offices in La Monnaie / De Munt opera house in Brussels, RESEO receives financial support from the European Commission’s Culture programme since 2008.
How does RESEO operate?
The RESEO network connects those who work in opera education in a number of ways.
Meetings: RESEO organises biannual conferences as well as seminars and other events throughout the year. To have an overview of conferences, click here.
Projects: RESEO is more than a ‘talking-shop’ and encourages genuine collaboration between its members. RESEO’s cross-member projects play an important role in spreading good practice and indeed developing the art forms of opera and dance.
Forum: To complement the face-to-face meetings, this website offers the opportunity to meet virtually via the members' webspace.
In print: Members are kept up-to-date with each other's news via a regular newsletter, an online calendar of each other's events and periodic special RESEO research publications.
