Locatie

Operadagen Rotterdam gebruikt haar stad als podium én decor. Veel voorstellingen zijn op onalledaagse en onontdekte locaties in de stad: pleinen, woonkamers, kerken, een oude wasserij, winkels, bovenop de Bijenkorf en zelfs een fitnesscentrum.

Language no problem

Text isn't necessary for the correct perception of the performance. When there's text, it's English spoken or surtitled.

International partners

Together with Austrian Music Export, an organization supporting Austrian music and musicians, we present a special programme around Austrian theatre makers during Operation Music Theatre.
