About Opera Days

The third edition of Reykjavík Opera Days will take place from the 30th of October until the 3rd of November. After a fantastic festival in 2018, the festival won the "Music Festival of the Year" at the Icelandic Music Awards. 


"Odes to the Climate" is the theme this year and the main focus will be on climate change. All around town, new and old songs/pieces of music will be performed, poems recited and everyone is encouraged to join and sing, recite, yell, whisper, scream, humm, call and perform any kinds of odes to nature, youth, Mother Earth and existence in its whole. The purpose of all this is to use music and singing to bring people together, and create a positive and empowering platform to discuss this most urgent topic of today. Our inspiration comes from the young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, the Estonian Singing Revolution as well as nature itself, youth and motherhood. We'll encourage discussions, talks and search for solutions for this great environmental threat.
