In January the "On Stage 2018" guide was launched in the frame of the European Year of Cultural Heritage by the three performing arts organisations PEARLE, the European Theatre Convention and Opera Europa/OperaVision. "On Stage 2018" is Europe's first online searchable calendar for live performances.
Being the first European tool of its kind, "On Stage 2018" celebrates the rich and dynamic role played by the performing arts and music in Europe’s cultural legacy. It features theatre, opera, music, dance and other performances held across Europe throughout the year.
Member organisations of the three networks are invited to participate in this one-year project by submitting their performances, side events, but also written and video statements on dedicated performances. All performances are selected to highlight the sector's vitality and underline our cultural diversity, as the live performance scene highly contributes to the contemporary European discourse and the spread of the European identity. The online guide is a unique tool which regularly can be updated with new events directly by theatres and opera houses. Special support events including behind-the-scenes tours, readings and interviews will support the performance programme.
