Starting from 2017, Opera Europa, as the largest European organisation that includes operas, made it possible for its entrepreneurial member organisations to upload a recording of a performance for six months to OperaVision, a strong and stable portal. The project is supported European Union’s Creative Europe programme. In 2018, Tibor Navracsics, the commissioner for EU affairs at the time, and Nicholas Payne, the President of Opera Europa, confirmed this undertaking in the office of the Opera’s general director.
Uploaded films are judged by a jury. The image and audio recordings have to be owned by the uploader, and subtitles have to be provided in several languages. In recent years, tens of thousand were given the chance to view the performances of the Hungarian State Opera including our national opus, Bánk Bán – The Viceroy Bánk.
