About Opera Days

Reykjavik Opera Days 2020 - 2021

General information about Reykjavik Opera Days

Reykjavik Opera Days is a fresh and growing festival that has gained considerable attention since it was held for the first time in 2016 as Kopavogur Opera Days. Moving to Reykjavik in 2018, it won the Music Festival of the Year award at the Icelandic Music Awards in the following year.

Founded by passionate young singers that were frustrated at the lack of an exciting grass root classical vocal/opera/music theatre scene in Iceland. From the beginning, they aimed to create a festival where there would be room for experiments, international collaboration, events for all age groups in unusual and usual places and spaces as well as a strong community focus. This is still the goal as well as creating new job opportunities for singers and their collaborators and facilitating expansion of their network by offering symposiums, workshops, masterclasses and other events connected to the genre and profession. 

Today, the festival has become a well known event in Icelandic cultural life and is gradually gaining more attention abroad. We encourage everyone interested in our work to reach out to us and get in touch.
