From Friday 20 to Sunday 29 May 2022, O. takes place at various locations in Rotterdam. O. is an international festival for opera, music and theatre with unique location performances and exciting productions in the halls of the city. Ten days of performances and concerts, from works in progress to world premieres by young makers and more familiar names. After two 'corona editions' in 2020 and 2021, O. in 2022 will again be a ten-day festival in May, including two weekends and Ascension Day.
The festival presents modern productions of the (inter)national top, but also work by young, adventurous makers.
O. is the new name for Operadagen Rotterdam since 2021. O. is a festival for curious visitors. O. stands for opera and breaking open the genre. O. focuses on adventure, talented makers and cross-links with genres: from performance to electropop and from smartlap to street culture. O. does not think in pigeonholes. O. is open-minded. O. moves, renews and connects. O. is as diverse as Rotterdam.
