The Antigua Opera Society was launched on February 26th, 2018 in the presence of friends, supporters, Opera Director Gianmaria Aliverta, from Milan, and His Excellency the Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda, Sir Rodney Williams.
The Antigua Opera Society objectives are to bring Opera to Antigua, to stimulate the development of classical music, to create an annual Opera festival, and develop master classes for young Antiguan and Barbudan talents (both instrumentalists and singers).
The Antigua Opera Society is a non-profit organisation and any surplus revenue will go to further the objectives of the society. The Society’s professional staff is not paid; all time and efforts are voluntary.
Spring (2018) has been chosen to produce three evenings of Open-Air Opera Concerts in different settings, featuring professional Italian opera singers performing a variety of arias from well known operas. These performances, set on April 13th, 14th and 15th will be different. More information on these productions will be forthcoming shortly. In 2019, they intend to produce a full length Opera and plans for that production are already under way.
The immediate goal is to raise the funds necessary to bring the professional Italian performers, who have committed to appear in Antigua next month.
