ENGLISH


In June the 1st 2012, a group of opera fans, full of hope and excitement, met at the footbridge that gives access to the Palau de les Arts in Valencia to formalize the constitution of an independent, non-profit, cultural association whose main goal is supporting the operatic activity in the Palau de les Arts and in all the Valencian Autonomous Community, driven by our confidence in the capacity of civil society to associate and become an active instrument of progress through the claiming of their interests, with the intimate conviction that opera, music and culture in general show mankind how to think, making them freer.
The association Amics de l'Òpera i de les Arts de la Comunitat Valenciana (AOA_CV) wants to be a meeting point for the fans, promoting the spreading and the knowledge of the lyric activity, giving a boost to the participation of Valencian society in these activities and demanding the assignment of sufficient public resources for our cultural institutions and for the promotion of opera, according to the relevance that this artistic discipline has achieved in the last few years in the Valencian Autonomous Community.
Ultimately, our goals are, on the one hand, focusing our aspirations in an effective way, so that the voice of the opera fans might be heard; and on the other hand, giving support to our cultural institutions so that their activities might be led by technical and artistic criteria and they might receive enough resources to obtain significant achievements in the operatic sphere.
For all these reasons, we encourage all the opera fans to join us in this project.



WHO ARE WE?
We are fans of opera and lyric theatre from the whole territory of the Valencian Autonomous Community, who want to support the lyric activity in our area and, in particular, the activity of the Palau de les Arts.
Our members are distributed geographically throughout Castellón, Valencia and Alicante, including residents of foreign nationality.
