The NODO Biennial / New Opera Days Ostrava – a unique continuous festival of new opera in the Czech Republic. Since its foundation ten years ago, the NODO festival has been demonstrating the power of artistic expression in contemporary opera. The increase in the audience, especially from the younger generation, can be attributed to works that explore the significance of our existence in the 21st century, including those featured in the festival program. The seventh biennale of the NODO festival takes place from 26 to 30 June 2024.

The ticket presale will be launched on 8 April 2024!



Thanks to the close cooperation of the two organizing institutions, the Ostrava Centre for New Music and the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre, seven productions will be staged under the direction of international production teams, demonstrating creative curiosity and the power of current artistic expression. This year's programme will present operatic and musical-theatrical works by Pascal Dusapin, František Chaloupka, Amir Shpilman, Ian Davis, Haštal Hapka, Ann Cleare and Petr Rezek, including guest performers of Italian Futurist 'intonarumori' instruments. Performers will include solo singers and conductors from Europe and the USA, production teams from the Czech Republic, Austria and Israel; resident ensembles include the international Ostravská banda, members of ONO – Ostrava New Orchestra and the Canticum Ostrava choir under the direction of Yurii Galatenko. The seventh biennial of the NODO Festival will take place daily from 26 to 30 June 2024 on the stages of the Jiří Myron Theatre, Antonín Dvořák Theatre, Ostrava Puppet Theatre and the Tatran Hall (Bonver Arena).
