Opera in 140 characters

From the union of the Opera di Firenze and OperaVoice, the initiative #neverlandOF is born: a virtual space online with 10 seats reserved for bloggers who, for each opera or ballet premiere, will compete by tweeting thoughts and pictures during the show.  Tweet-seats are part of a broader project linking lyric opera to the world of social media. Tweet-seats are located in the first box on the right in order to not disturb the audience.

#neverlandOF continues with the 80th Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Don Carlo – May 5, 2017), our Summer Season 2017 at Cortile di Palazzo Pitti (La Cenerentola – June 9, 2017) and the “Passione Puccini” cycle (Madama Butterfly – September 8, 2017; La Bohème – September 14, 2017; Tosca – September 22, 2017).
