Opera for Peace – Leading Young Voices of the World
is a new cultural movement reflecting the reality of today’s globalized world, building our cultural and creative future together through passion and determination.

Worldwide and for everyone

Nicole Car, Soprano

The Project

We believe in the strength of connecting nations and transcending differences through the unifying communication of opera.

Drawing upon the diversity of all cultural heritages whilst working towards a common goal of artistic excellence, we strongly aspire for the advancement of this lyric art form and promoting positive universal values - most importantly, mutual respect.

Opera for Peace aims to develop the art form of opera in all countries around the world.

"Music is the language of souls. For me, singing is communication through music that connects people. That’s a gift that we need to share with the world and to send an important message." Ying Fang
Soprano
The finest international artists come together in collaboration with global partners to create the future of Opera

A new cultural movement

Our Work

Working closely with our partners we develop cultural understanding by creating the next generation of opera stars who will become ambassadors for our values, uniting and positively influencing society and future generations.

Artistic development occurs through a unique, flexible and personalized global schedule of high-level training projects, concerts, masterclasses, educational exchanges, and special cultural diplomatic projects. These events are often presented in collaboration with our Peace Ambassadors and guest artists.

"As artists, we’ve already devoted ourselves to our craft, but we’re seeing the need to devote our art back to our communities and the world. This movement to unite is truly the way forward." Ailyn Pérez
Soprano

Our ambitions are limitless

"The beauty of being transported into another place during an artistic experience like opera is amazing. With all the problems of the world, music has a very important place in society. It is uplifting, inspiring, and informative." Lawrence Brownlee

Our Values

The special status and position of an artist gives them the opportunity to communicate their convictions about the most serious concerns humanity faces, topics outlined by the World Economic Forum: climate change, security, inequality, poverty and civil rights, as well as mental health and body positivity.

We provide a platform for our artists and partners to speak about the essential social issues facing our world and society today. We also give special support to artists from disadvantaged backgrounds, and promote social justice and equality.
