Opera sponsoring: opera for all

On Saturday, June 15, 2024, the curtain will rise again. Will you be there?

Zurich and the Opera House: We bring cultural events to the people

Around the globe, Zurich Opera House is renowned for its top-class opera and ballet productions. Every year, it stages around 300 opera and ballet performances as well as concerts. The bandwidth and innovative drive is impressive – from Baroque classics to modern productions. Since 2014, Zurich has been making an effort to open up opera to a wide audience. We sponsor the Opera House for this reason. Every summer, we attract a large, mixed audience with spectacular open-air "opera for all" or "ballet for all" performances. By means of the children's opera, we enable our little culture enthusiasts to experience a unique event they will always remember.

«opera for all" and "ballet for all»

Since 2014, Zurich Switzerland has been the main sponsor of the open-air event "opera for all" and "ballet for all." The event takes place each summer – with an opera or ballet performance. Together with the Opera House, Zurich Switzerland invites everybody to Sechseläutenplatz in Zurich: There, a performance is streamed live from the Opera House onto a large screen. The event is a regular element of Zurich's cultural agenda, which regularly attracts about 10,000 people. On Saturday, June 15, 2024, the «opera for all» program is going to feature a live broadcast of George Bizet's masterpiece, Carmen.
