Figaro at the 2015 live festival edition
International opera and music theatre festival O. (formerly: Operadagen Rotterdam) presents contemporary, innovative, and ground-breaking productions by established international makers as well as young and adventurous talent. Their online professionals' programme introduces (new) Dutch work, musicians and companies to international presenters. The programme takes place online on 11 & 12 May 2021 with the support of Dutch Performing Arts.
Because of the current pandemic, O. has decided to postpone their live edition in Rotterdam until 23-29 August 2021. In the meantime the festival will organise an online programme for international presenters. The online professionals' programme features presentations, artist talks, speed dates, various online performances and previews, and a panel discussion on the theme In/Equality on the Digital Stage.

At the O. Network Meeting on 12 May presenters will be introduced to a variety of young and established artists and companies from the Netherlands through video pitches, round table discussions and one-on-one meetings. International presenters who would like to take part in the online professionals' programme on 11-12 May can register with O..
