European Opera Days

THE OPERA PLATFORM celebrates this year’s European Opera Days by offering you an Opera Panorama Festival. From 5 to 14 May, enjoy a great diversity of performances from across Europe, and browse through the diversity and richness of opera in our collection of extracts and back-stage moments from around the continent.
