oper für alle

Live broadcast on Sechseläutenplatz

Every year, the Opernhaus Zürich invites everyone to oper für alle. This free, open-air spectacle is an integral part of Zurich’s cultural calendar. Be a part of it when the majestic Sechseläutenplatz is transformed as more than 10,000 spectators come together to take in Georges Bizet’s masterpiece Carmen, broadcast live from the Opernhaus with a glittering cast. Bring your friends and family, your folding chairs, blankets, and picnic dinners – or pick something up on site. The whole program kicks off at 6 pm. By the way: the evening before, we celebrate kino für alle!

There will be oper für alle again next year. The Opernhaus will be showing Jacques Offenbach's fantastical opera Les Contes d'Hoffmann on the last weekend of the 24/25 season.
