Introduction to the Public Site
Operabase has documented operatic activity worldwide since 1996, with over 360,000 performances on file. It records the work of artists in over 900 theatres, and publishes season information to opera-goers in 23 languages.
The majority of Operabase's information is provided free of charge. The public area contains access to the current and announced future seasons of each opera house. Powerful tools are provided to access the data in flexible ways :
- rich cross linking allows quick access to related artist, performance, and season info
- geographic information is used to create mouse-sensitve maps and listings of performances in neighbouring cities
- loose name matching means artist names can be recognised even when spelled incorrectly
- multilingual vocabularies support searches for place names and opera titles in different languages
Operabase also supplies performance listings to specialist opera magazines, Opera and Opera Now in the UK, and Ópera Actual in Spain.
Professionals tools for opera houses, artists and their managers are provided through Operabase Professional.
