Den Jyske Opera

Skovgaardsgade 2C,
8000 Aarhus C, Denmark

Philipp Kochheim, Opera Director

"Opera is an international art form and European cooperations have been in the core nature of opera throughout history. Danish composers have premiered works in many European cities – works we are now exploring through our “Danish Series”. For this, and many other reasons, it is natural for Den Jyske Opera to be a part of the FEDORA Platform."

Philipp Kochheim
Opera Director
