The Festival is organized by Association Festival Opera Prima ets in collaboration with Teatro del Lemming and the Culture Department of the Municipality of Rovigo and with the support of Cassa di Risparmio di Padova e Rovigo Foundation and of the Italian Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
Born in Rovigo in 1994 under the artistic direction of Teatro del Lemming, Festival Opera Prima became immediately an event able to lead to critical attention a new theatrical generation that, in the 90s, was completely excluded from the Italian theatre scene. OPERA PRIMA became an "home" and a reference point for this generation, that soon proclaimed itself “Generation of the Invisible Theatres”. The Festival was really important to support those artists stand out. In recognition of this activity, in 1996 the Festival was the winner of the UBU "Giuseppe Bartolucci" prize, awarded by a jury led by the critic Franco Quadri.
