Danish Arts Fest will:

  • CREATE Denmark’s first opera festival, built around a double-bill format that simultaneously promotes the operatic canon and acts as a catalyst for the creation of new Danish-language operas

  • PROMOTE the landscape, culture, and community that makes Denmark so unique, embodying Danish spirit in the heart of its productions

  • FURTHER Denmark’s position as a cultural leader, nurturing and promoting the country as an internationally viable creator of innovative opera

  • INCREASE accessibility throughout Denmark to both existing and contemporary opera by taking productions out of the city and into the countryside, to areas that currently have low levels of artistic engagement

  • FUTURE plans include touring the works we create in Engestofte to other rural areas of Denmark
