Technical & Production forum

The Technical & Production forum brings together Technical Directors and Production Managers who regularly meet at Opera Europa conferences or separately. Since it was founded in 2004, the senior Opera Europa forum has dealt with issues like Production Project Management, in-house workshops versus outsourcing, good practice for rentals and co-productions, and the conception of a Theatre Database.

The steering group of the forum is composed of:
Bob Brandsen (Royal Opera House Covent Garden)
Paulo Da-Luz (Den Norske Opera og Ballett)
Harald Fasslriner (Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe)
Jan Kuppens (Kunsthuis Opera Vlaanderen)
Kim Lennart Hansen (Royal Danish Theatre)
Timo Tuovila (Finnish National Opera Helsinki)

The last meeting of the Technical & Production forum took place at La Monnaie in Brussels on 17 and 18 March 2017, on the topic of Artistic Production Management.
