World Opera Day

World Opera Day is an international initiative to showcase the ways opera companies and artists enrich the livelihood and civic fabric of their communities.

World Opera Day ( is held annually on October 25. It is a collaboration between OPERA America, Opera Europa, and Ópera Latinoamérica.
