The europera project brings together more than 200 talented, young and musicians from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. It is made up of a symphonic orchestra, a choir and a few chamber ensembles.
The europera project provides young musicians with the opportunity to make music together and experience the atmosphere of rehearsals and concerts under the baton of a professional conductor. Through this project, they meet peers from their neighbouring countries and learn about their culture. It is a wonderful example how these nations, who have had a troubled history, can overcome these difficulties by co-operating on such a project.
The europera project was founded by Professor Wolf-Dieter Ludwig, the then Director of the Theatre of Görlitz , in 1992. The word "europera" was formed by connecting two words - europa (Europe) and opera (from Latin: the plural form of opus). In other words, it helps build and form Europe by means of cultural activities.
Since 2014 Manuel Pujol is conductor of the tri-national ensemble. German Choral Conductor`s Prize goes in this year to Manuel Pujol.
Since 2012, the project has had as its patron the "Hillersche Villa - Soziokultur im Dreiländereck".
