Baltic Opera Festival

From the very beginning, The Baltic Opera Festival has established itself as one of the largest open-air opera events in Europe. Renowned singer Tomasz Konieczny invites everyone to Gdańsk and Sopot for the upcoming edition of his original project, taking place on July 20-25.

Audiences will have the opportunity to experience opera productions specially curated for the Festival, featuring exceptional soloists. Celebrating Giacomo Puccini’s legacy, the Festival will present his final masterpiece, “Turandot.” It is with great pride that the Festival announces the participation of the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra, with Keri-Lynn Wilson conducting Puccini’s opus. Richard Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman” returns to the Forest Opera in Sopot, this time starring Tomasz Konieczny in the title role. Continuing cooperation between opera institutions in Poland, The Grand Theater from Łódź will stage the musical fairy tale “Hänsel und Gretel” by Engelbert Humperdinck. The Baltic Opera Festival also offers numerous accompanying events and opportunities to meet the stars of the world opera scene.

Last year, the nearly packed audience was enthralled, as noted by: Die Welt’s Manuel Brug:”The almost-full audience was delighted; SWR2’s Regine Mueller praised it as “a fruitful revival of a unique place,” while Polityka weekly’s Dorota Szwarcman expressed optimism: “It is good that opera is back here, and let’s hope it will continue.”

With its unique crystal-clear acoustics and captivating scenography utilizing the natural surroundings of the Forest Opera in Sopot, alongside the finest soloists and producers, the Festival attracted over 8000 viewers last year.

This year, the adventure continues, adding new chapters to the history of a place known since its inception as “The Bayreuth of the North.”
