Young voices and new music

Operaen i Midten lends the limelight to young talents, who will and can sing. It will become obvious in November when we let the curtain go on the world premiere of the Paul Scwartz-version of Snow White. The students from our talentschool have the leading parts in this new opera.

For more than 300 years Opera has been a keystone for Fine Arts. But at the same time an art-form, which appealed to the many, becoming the most popular event for everybody to looking forward to.

The Opera in the Middle has a mission to create opera-productions on highest possible level aimed for everybody, who wants to experience this classical art-form, which combines drama, storytelling, visual design, choreography, song and music.

We believe, that opera has a future, but which? This is the question, we ask ourselves, and what we build our vision upon; to rethink opera and make it available and relevant in any sense.

The Opera in The Middle has a strong position, when it comes to producing new original operas for the early generation,

and since the beginning of Opera in The Middle as a formalized public institution in 2004, thousands of children and teenagers have attended our operas. And the impact has been overwhelming.

The Opera in the Middle wants to pursue this work, continue and develop our urge to offer newer generations the chance to experience this great art-form.

The Opera in the Middle is a regional theatre-company, supported by the municipalities of Herning, Holstebro, Ikast-Brande, Struer and the Danish Art Foundation.
