A huge variety of styles, forms and eras are all joined by the leading motif: opera. Following the resounding success of last two years’ festivals, the Opera Rara Festival once again fills the stages of Kraków and the hearts of music lovers!

So what does the Opera Rara Festival 2019 has in store? It brings a myriad forms, presenting vocal recitals with piano and orchestra, concert versions of operas and two stage performances prepared especially for the event. The festival also reaches for works from the period of Romanticism and contemporary composers, without losing any of its Baroque heritage.
