International Opera Festival In Miskolc, Until 23 June
The objective of the founders of the International Opera Festival in Miskolc was to connect Miskolc and the region into international musical life.

At present the main purpose of the festival is to bill modern – 20th century and contemporary – operas, which can be described as ’popular operas’: that is, demanding, but melodious works capable of addressing huge audiences.

Within that, visitors of the festival can see modern, but already classical pieces, new operas, large-scale free performances and an opera composition competition, as well.

You can find the festival program here
