European Opera Days

European Opera Days

Last week-end, Opera was alive and online throughout Europe, and beyond!

The now traditional European Opera Days took place between 8 and 10 May with 101 opera companies in 23 countries celebrating opera in all its diversity. This year’s theme – opera alive and online – translated into the most creative events alongside the well-loved guided tours and open houses. The launch of The Opera Platform (, offering free access to full opera performances, extracts and behind the scenes peaks, reinforced the message, and it is a pleasure to say that opera was very present and easily accessible for all.
