Iran’s Rudaki Foundation, Vienna State Opera discuss joint cooperation
The director of the Rudaki Foundation, Mehdi Afzali, and the head of Digital Development at the Vienna State Opera, Christopher Widauer, discussed joint collaborations, including the renovation of Vahdat Hall. Considering the common features of Vahdat Hall and the Vienna Opera House, equipping, reconstructing and renovating the machinery and technical part of the hall, as well as providing advice on standardization of instruments’ maintenance methods were important points of this videoconference, according to IRNA.
Referring to the special conditions caused by the outbreak of coronavirus in the world and the restrictions on holding art programs, the two sides discussed novel ways of increasing artistic interactions between the two countries.
Holding joint performances and forming online masterclasses were among the proposals made at the meeting.
It has been more than four decades since Vahdat Hall was launched, while many of its equipment such as the mechanical system have been worn out.
