Da Copenhagen Opera Festival 2020 aflyses grundet COVID-19 i sit kendte format, giver festivalen i stedet 100 opera-øjeblikke i gave til dejlige København. Disse små intime akustiske koncerter fordeles ud på tværs af København og afholdes over få dage i slutningen af august. Hvert øjeblik er en akustisk fremførelse, hvor 20 små musikalske hold sammensætter et individuelt kreativt program, der højst må vare i 15 minutter.
The Opera Talent of the Year spotlights a new and exciting classical singing talent. On 20 May 2020, Copenhagen Opera Festival reveals the young bass, Nicolai Elsberg as the award recipient for 2020/21.

In light of the Danish authorities’ Coronavirus/COVID-19 ban on all large-scale events until the end of August 2020, Copenhagen Opera Festival is taking its time to carefully go through this year’s planned program with all involved parties, as many components of our festival unfortunately cannot be carried out as planned.
