Certainly, if there is promise of a rainfree evening/afternoon, they are crowded but at the same time these are truly great events not to be missed.

They take place outdoors at selected outdoor venues; in parks and other green fields.

As they are on a first serve, first come basis, and every year, since their start 16 years ago, the concerts are increasingly popular, go early to get a good seat.

Bring a carpet or pillows, and of course a picnic and enjoy the music of  Verdi, Johan Strauss and Puccini, amongst others but also more modern with Gershwin musicals on the program.

The idea behind OPERA I DET FRI is to bring classical music out to the public around the country, the venues take place all over Denmark and as they are free, the aim is to entice a larger audience to get a taste of what the Royal Danish Theatre has to offer.
