CIVIC OPERA CREATIONS (COCREATIONS) is a producer for new innovative music theater and opera created in dialogue and thought exchange between communities and artists. In connection with new technologies and impulses from interdisciplinary scenes,we expand the traditional opera space and its narratives. Founded in Vienna in 2020, COCREATIONS builds bridges between traditional and new structures and creates new methods of cooperation and reference to establish opera as a representative part of the 21st century and a place for repeated encounters.
