AMAZE ME: Opera for Young Audiences in Europe

2 April, 2013
RESEO, edited by Penny Simpson


A RESEO Publication

A European “best of” of productions for young audiences, both of new creations and repertoire revisited. Of well known stories – and contemporary subject matters. Of participatory operas, cross-arts adventures, small formats and main-stage productions. Find out more about productions for teens, for children, and even for babies. And most often, it is a production that is of interest to all ages, in which every audience member will be swept away by a different sense of wonder, where quality is revealed.

This book is a showcase of one of the most rapidly evolving sectors in the domain of opera, which is breaking free of preconceptions and experimenting new ways of creating operatic works: that of productions for young audiences. Strangely, however, visibility seems to be lacking on European level. Maybe it is books like this that were lacking to date?

AMAZE ME has also been translated in French.
