Opera party of the year took place in Eldborg in Harpa on the 5th of November. The host of the evening, Bjarni Thor Kristinsson, presented fun, strange and unexpected opera scenes with the help of some of Iceland finest singers.
Over 20 singers participated in the event with the amazing Ástríður Alda Sigurðardóttir playing the piano. The first half of the party was dedicated to the story of Operaday’s Festival, which startet with a small production at a bar in the town of Kópavogur in 2015. Since then the festival has grown every year, now partly taking place in Iceland’s finest concert house, Eldborg hall in Harpa.
The founder of Operadays and its CEO Guja Sandholt told in the interview with Bjarni about the variety of events that have taken place under the umbrella of the festival. This interview was
