"Without Operabase it is very clear that casting would become even more difficult than it already is. For example, we have just now had a cancellation and it enabled me to find out not only who has recently sung the rôle but what those singers are doing during the period of our performances. It enabled me to plan my opera scouting trips very easily and more accurately than in the past. What has been so useful is the accuracy of the information."
Artistic Administrator, Metropolitan Opera
"It has become an indispensable tool and we in the artistic team at
Glyndebourne use it constantly. The more information the better."

"The Operabase Professional database puts an enormous range of information at your
fingertips. At the Royal Opera House we find it an invaluable resource which
we turn to especially on those crisis days when a singer is sick and a
replacement needs to be found. The comprehensive listings are a real boon."
Director of Opera, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

"We use these tools and databases frequently and they are of
immeasurable help as we discuss casting for our future seasons.

our fingertips. A direct link to a manager's site and contact
information would also be of great help."

doit remplacer dans l'urgence un chanteur malade. Nous pouvons
ainsi très rapidement voir les artistes qui ont le rôle à leur
répertoire et les localiser, ce qui peut parfois sauver un

"The Operabase Casting tool is one of the most useful services the internet
provides for our profession. I use it almost daily."
Künstlerischer Betriebsdirektor, Opera Graz
"It's our number one resource; the first place we turn either in an emergency
or in calmer times. The breadth and depth of information available at the
touch of a button was inconceivable five years ago - the site sums up all
