Opera returns to the remote island of Røst as the Querini Opera Festival presents the very best of local culture and cuisine in spectacular natural surroundings.

The pinnacle of the festival will be the full scale opera production “Querini” based on the dramatic historical account of the venetian merchant and nobleman Pietro Querini who stranded at Røst in 1432. The opera was performed for the first time on Røst in 2012, and then again in 2014. It was very well received by critics, including by Financial Time who called it “the most moving work of music theatre ever to be written about dried fish.”
The festival also present family concerts, a night of opera galla and lots of other cultural and gastronomical activities. The island community of Røst invites you to come celebrate opera music and top quality stockfish under the midnight sun!
