Welcome to the website of Aarhus Sommeropera, Denmark's leading chamber opera company.
Every summer we perform in the historic and charming Helsingør Theatre, part of the Old Town, Aarhus, Denmark.

Helsingør Theater


Aarhus Sommeropera is proud to present yet another thought-provoking world premiere, Chains, as our
production in 2016. Chains is the story of a boy who spends his life chained to a tree in his grandmother's courtyard.
His grandmother is not evil - she has chained the boy to a tree to fulfill a prophesy promising the local community prosperity.
Aarhus Sommeropera have specially commissioned this work from Svend Hvidfelt Nielsen, composer of one of the company's,
greatest successes - Edens Gave. The opera is a free adaptation of the novel Papaya-passionen by Sanne Bjerg.
