Paris - Province: power balance of opera houses on social networks - | digital technologies in classical music & opera | Scoop.it
This balance of power between Opera de Paris and other French opera houses on social networks could seem inequal. However if you look at the numbers of facebook fans of major USA-located opera houses, it's not.
Sonic Solveig's blog's insight:

I would recommend to opera houses located outside Paris  area to continue and to accelerate involvement on social networks  !

Are Orchestras Really in Crisis? A Debate

Are Orchestras Really in Crisis? A Debate | digital technologies in classical music & opera | Scoop.it

The problem today is that orchestral programming has become generic, heavily dependent on a small number of widely popular works and celebrity soloists, with little room for new composition, logistically challenging core pieces from the nineteenth- and twentieth-century tradition, and forgotten or neglected symphonic masterpieces from the past. Unfortunately, orchestras have been struggling to reach a wider audience for decades now, and have mostly failed, often because outreach efforts are based on a vitiated musical repertoire rather than the intellectually and emotionally challenging orchestral experience that appeals to serious listeners. When faced with repeated failure, it makes little sense to keep repeating things that don’t work. My analysis isn’t novel, but it has distressingly little currency among orchestra managers: That orchestras are very well suited to playing orchestral music, and not particularly well adapted to being social service organizations.
