It turned out to be a somewhat different year than originally planned, but when we look back at the summer, it still offered Copenhagen a lot of beautiful opera.
We will return strongly with a wide range of what you already know, as well as brand new formats and events. The program is published on an ongoing basis. Sign up for our newsletter here (in danish) and be the first to hear the news.
At Copenhagen Opera Festival, we are very excited to open up and share the process of creating a new Opera, right from the very beginning. Lisbon Floor (working title) is a new commission from the inspiring team of librettist Lea Marie Løppenthin, composer Matias Vestergård Hansen and director Natascha Metherell which began it's journey in 2019 - evolving considerably during the Corona Pandemic.
Copenhagen Opera Festival and The Royal Danish Opera present Barrie Koskys versions of Mozarts The Magic Flute, which has thrilled audiences around the world.
Elvis Costello's genre-less love songs 'The Juliet Letters' were performed during last year's Copenhagen Opera Festival led by Danish singer Kira Skov. This year, we have the honor to put on this wonderfully successful production in collaboration with Tivoli, for one night only, where Elvis Costello’s album yet again will be taken under the artistic wings of Kira Skov and the Copenhagen Philharmonic String Quartet.
