This is a bulletin board, where we will share news about our ongoing journey; events that pop up along the way; new discoveries we stumble upon and other material of curiosity gathered on the route of TRAVERS.

Together with CPH OPERA Festival, TRAVERS will be hosting events during this year’s festival in August. The events will take place in Copenhagen and are connected to the festival program. We intend to share knowledge, reflect and inspire each other through dialogues on the position of the opera and music drama in the present and the future.
