Innovation & Creativity

Childrens Productions

Every season DNO produce opera performances for children, sent on tour all over the country with the ambition to meet every child with important stories told in genuine opera.

The Danish Series

Since the world’s first opera more than 90.000 operas have been written – but only about 60 of them are played regularly. Danish composers like August Enna, Ludolf Nielsen or Paul von Klenau are nearly forgotten, even though their masterworks are as enchanting and rewarding than the likes of contemporary Italian, French or German composers. With our “Danish Series” we take up this challenge as we aim to unfold and celebrate the wealth of Danish culture to our audiences.

Emerging Artists
