If you think that all operas are of the classical variety, then come to Munich and have your eyes (and ears) opened. Every two years since 1988, the Munich Biennale has provided a platform for mainly young composers to premiere contemporary operatic works. As well as focusing on originality, the festival's organisers place great emphasis on achieving a broad international mix of contributors. Performances are accompanied by concerts, symposiums and discussion forums with composers.
The 2012 Munich Biennale took place from 2 May to 19 May. Exact dates for the next Biennale have not yet been confirmed.
