World Opera Day 2020

World Opera Day is celebrated on 25 October, the birthday of Georges Bizet and Johann Strauss II, composers of possibly the world’s most famous opera and operetta.

For this 2020 edition, OperaVision, the free streaming platform supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, will stream three contrasting versions of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio: in a recent recorded concert version; in an animated form for young people; and in a promenade production staged at the heart of an inner-city community.
