Congratulations to Birmingham Opera Company, winners of the 2020 FEDORA Education Prize for Going for Gold!
The FEDORA Prize for Education in partnership with RESEO and Opera Europa seeks to reward innovative opera and ballet education projects encouraging social integration and intercultural dialogue. It is awarded alongside the Opera, Ballet and Digital prizes.
Going for Gold aims to integrate education and community work within the artistic process. Working with volunteers and emerging artists to create large-scale work in extraordinary places, the project will culminate in 2021 in an adaptation of Wagner’s RhineGold celebrating the voices and stories of the people of Birmingham.
“Going For Gold is an avant-garde project about how to integrate cultural rights in the process of making opera.”
Bernard Foccroulle, Chair of the FEDORA Education Prize Jury.
