  • Why is opera better than pizza?

    38



    International Brazilian Opera Company presents scenes from four new operas by composers João MacDowell, Thiago Tiberio and Luigi Porto.

    At iBoc we aim to mix ideas from both Brazilian and international artists to create new approaches for the genre. iBoc's core team has members from Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Italy, Portugal and the United States and we hope to have even more diversity as our team grows. Through collaboration and shared perspectives, we believe opera can be relevant to large audiences.

    We also believe that opera is the multimedia event of the future. Not only does opera unite all art forms, the genre has a lot of potential for creative development. Most opera companies now have access to contemporary performance techniques, yet they keep repeating a repertoire that was written in the 19th century. The iBoc creative team consists of professional composers, singers, musicians, film-makers, mixed media artists, choreographers and performance artists. We are dedicated to producing unique and refreshing performances.
