The Operosa Montenegro Opera Festival

The Operosa Montenegro Opera Festival takes place in the stunning open air Kanli Kula Fortress Amphitheater overlooking the Adriatic Sea in Herceg Novi in Montenegro.

The Festival combines unique performances of international opera talent with the rich local cultural heritage attracting an ever growing audience and media from across the world.

The Festival celebrated its 10th edition in 2016

Operosa was founded in 2006 to promote young talent in the Balkan region and the first open air opera festival was launched in June 2007 with a fully staged up-dated production of “Don Giovanni” by W.A. Mozart at Evksinograd Castle in Varna, Bulgaria.

Operosa has since expanded into Montenegro and Serbia with numerous opera performances, classical music concerts and recitals featuring artists from all over the world.

“Rossini, Salmieri and the hard-working cast made this, in the end, a jolly and highly entertaining evening. Operosa has worthy aims, is dedicated to its young singers, and has found itself rather a fine spot to continue its endeavors.”
