Europa Lirica Opera Company
When Maximianno Cobra founded the Europa Philharmonia Choir and Orchestra in 1999, his idea was to create an ensemble which could make recordings using all the new possibilities of 21st century audio-visual technology. The Orchestra takes much pride in bringing together an elite of orchestra musicians and choir singers in Europe. Thanks to its long-term, elaborate artistic policy, Europa Philharmonia is also able to promote young instrumentalists and singers within an international environment of the highest standard.
In 2007 Maximianno Cobra decided to found the Opera Company - Europa Lirica. The Europa Lirica activities are attached to the Europa Philharmonia Orchestra and Choir projects, thus providing the unique opportunity to Opera singers to enter into the 21st century audio-visual technology. A specific training program fully based on Stanislavski's system of Acting has been created in order to improve Opera and Lieder singers including a pioneering study of prosody of our Artist Director who considers the study of linguistics the essential part in the singing process.
The choice of the name EUROPA conveys our deepest aspirations, i.e. a full understanding of the wide range of our European cultural heritage, and an attempt to show that its variety is rooted in a same universal ideal : mankind.
Among the many reasons which prompted HODIE™ and TEMPUS Collection to back Maximianno Cobra’s project, the major one was his multidisciplinary approach to make classical music easily accessible to a larger audience. Since its first production the Europa Lirica has made use of the latest and finest audio-visual technology, specially conceived and designed for new digital media projects.
Sponsorship of a concert at any of our residencies offers a major opportunity for high levels of visibility alongside a hospitality package designed for corporate entertaining of the highest level.
A range of opportunities and bespoke partnerships working with the Europa Philharmonia Orchestra across its entire artistic program internationally. Our multi-disciplinary projects are award-winning; our touring programs receive international acclaim; we are a pioneer in the use of digital technologies.
