All events cancelled until 29 December

In line with the government’s new Covid-19 guidelines, the Polish National Opera cancels all events until 29 December.

Dear Audience Members,

The Government Crisis Management Team has announced the details of its 100 days of solidarity scheme to fight Covid-19. The first phase of restrictions will last until 27 December 2020, during which time all cultural venues must remain closed to the public. Consequently, we are forced to cancel all performances scheduled until 29 December. We hope we will be able to welcome you back to our opera house in the New Year.

To fill the void left by live events, we are making our performances available to the public on the Internet. On 14 November 2020 we relaunched our online broadcasts with a stream of Casanova in Warsaw, which recorded 14,000 views. Soon, our VOD service,, will offer more internationally acclaimed productions. On 6 December we will celebrate Saint Nicholas Day with a special treat for our young audiences. Follow us on,, Facebook and Instagram for updates.

A host of archive performances, videos, photographs and other content are now available for you to explore on our website and social media channels to mark 55 years since the reopening of our opera house after post-war reconstruction in November 1965.
