Speakers: Axel Petri-Preis, mdw-University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna & Krysztina Winkel, Vienna State Opera
So-called Western art music has long been criticized as the epitome of exclusivity and elitism. Its concerts and performances have traditionally been – and still are - places and occasions of distinction and bourgeois self-assurance. Low general interest and a post-pandemic scenario brings cultural institutions now (at the latest) to think about how to make a meaningful offer to people beyond their core audience and create relevance in the communities in which they are situated.
The lecture will give an insight into current projects of the Vienna State Opera in the realm of audience and community engagement. It will show the aims of this world to make classical music life more open, diverse and inclusive.
