Saaremaa Opera Days

Saaremaa Opera Days is the most popular opera festival in the Baltics, which takes place in the middle of the summer at the courtyard of the historic Kuressaare Castle, where an opera house with 2000 seats is being built just for the occasion.

Kuressaare, the capital of Saaremaa, will come alive during this time: the terraces of the cafes are open until late at night, and the people are in the party mood. This time, there are two guest performers – the Hungarian National Opera and the Shanghai Opera House accompanied by a number of well-known classics.
