Held every summer since 1876, the Munich Opera Festival (Mɒnchner Opernfestspiele) at the Nationaltheater features a vast programme of opera and ballet performances throughout late June and July.
Munich Opera Festival features many pieces by renowned composers, from Handel and Bellini to Verdi, among many others. In 2009 the festival premiȲre is Richard Wagner's Lohengrin. A highlight for many, though, is always the Opera For All event, a free concert held this year on Munich's Marstallplatz square on 11 July.
