World Opera Day
World Opera Day is held on October 25. Officially is celebrated since 2019. This event in the third decade of the month october is annual.
This is an initiative led by three professional opera organisations: Opera America, Opera Latinoamérica and Opera Europa.
World Opera Day is an awareness campaign about the positive impact and value of opera for society. Opera, like other arts, contributes to developing tolerance and understanding, opening minds and connecting people with strong, universal emotions.
The choice of 25 October is no accident. The date falls on the birthdays of Georges Bizet and Johann Strauss, composers of possibly the world’s most famous opera and operetta.
Just as sport shapes a healthy body, the arts shape a healthy mind.
