CrossOpera Otherness: fear and discovery, is a project winner of EU Creative Europe program cooperation grant 2017. The project joints 3 opera theatres from 3 different countries: Teatro Comunale di Modena (Italy), Landestheater Linz (Austria) and Serbian National Theater from Novi Sad (Serbia).
Both Linz and Novi Sad are Modena twin cities. The main action of the project is to co-produce a new opera whose 3 acts will develop short stories commissioned to 3 different composers representing each country. All composers will work on the same given subject: “Otherness: fear and discovery”, sensitive to intercultural clash and integration. The subject of the work will develop three different stories concerning the recent immigration towards the countries of the European Union.
