For over ten years, the Macerata Opera Festival has been involved in accessibility projects for people with sensory disabilities of all ages.
In 2021, new inclusive tours guided by both blind/partially sighted and deaf and hard of hearing teenagers will explore Macerata’s art and discover the operas on stage, with all of our senses! Audio descriptions as well as Italian and English surtitles are also available for all the operas of the festival.
The InclusivOpera project has been implemented in collaboration with the University of Macerata, Museo Statale Tattile Omero (Ancona, Italy), Unione Italiana dei Ciechi e degli Ipovedenti (Macerata, Italy), and Ente Nazionale Sordi (Macerata, Italy). All tours are free and available for up to 35 people, while tickets for the performances are available at a reduced rate.
