Opera BE MY SUPERSTAR is part of a tour that will experience the world premiere at OMOF2019, after which it will be performed in Lisbon, Helsinki, and Ghent in the co-organization of our enoa partners. On this occasion, besides bringing a complete international artistic team and renowned opera names to Montenegro, Operosa is working hard to bring world-renowned journalists to be our guests.

For the first time this year, OMOF has the honor to include UNDP on the list of partners and support of the festival. Within the framework of the project "Low Carbon Tourism", Operosa proudly contributes to the reputation of Montenegro as a new green and carbon neutral tourist destination in the heart of Europe. Evidence of this can be demonstrated by the fact that the Operosa is one of the few large festivals that minimally uses environmentally harmful resources such as carbon dioxide.

OMOF and UNDP invite you to calculate your carbon footprint.
