OperaGenesis is an initiative for the development of new opera of all kinds. A key element of the Royal Opera House’s innovative ROH2 programme, it is funded by the Genesis Foundation. OperaGenesis is funded by the Genesis Foundation, a charitable foundation created by John Studzinski for the encouragement of emerging talents and the creation of new work in the performing arts. Other initiatives include the Young Vic’s Genesis Directors’ Project, the International Playwright’s Programme at the Royal Court Theatre, and scholarships for actors at LAMDA.

We just wanted to give thanks to all our supporters and members of the past year.

OperaGenesis will act as the home of an international information and contact network, the base for a continuous rolling programme of workshops and mentoring activities, and the catalyst for the creation of new opera performances for the 21st century.
