The Opera Group is seeking an experienced marketing professional to lead and implement a marketing campaign for our 2014 season.
The Opera Group tours new operas to different spaces and places throughout the UK and internationally – presenting each distinct project with a physicality and vitality that stretches the boundaries of what opera can be and who it is for.
In 2014 we will tour a new production of Gloria: A Pigtale. The ‘cabaret opera’ by Austrian composer HK Gruber will tour to venues and festivals including the Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House, Buxton Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Bregenzer Festspiele and other regional venues between May – August 2014.
We are seeking a marketing manager with experience in tour marketing ideally within an opera or theatre context to plan and manage a marketing campaign for the season. The ideal candidate will have the ability to cultivate excellent relationships with venues and festivals and will have the tools and expertise to maximise audience attendance in London and regionally. In addition we are looking for someone to develop a digital strategy for the season through social media and online promotion.
We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible. Fees are negotiable. We are interested in hearing from individual freelancers or small agencies who feel this project would complement their current portfolio.
If you are interested in discussing the role further please contact The Opera Group’s General Manager Alison Porter on email@example.com or 020 7848 7314 by 9 December for further information.
