Opera Hedeland is a modern amphitheatre situated in the beautiful Hedeland Nature Park, where some of the oldest dwellings in Denmark have been found.
The area features a prehistoric funeral site, classic Danish agricultural landscapes and a gently developed hilly leisure area with clean lakes and wonderful forests.
The landscape, the history, and the high-end opera performances provide a unique ambience. At Opera Hedeland, these qualities add up to a very generous way of experiencing opera. Situated only 30 minutes from Copenhagen – in the outskirts of historic Danish capital, Roskilde – an evening at Opera Hedeland is a perfect peak on a shorter or longer stopover in Denmark.
Picnic and opera
Most of the dedicated opera fans arrive early when the gates open at 1700 hrs. and spend the evening in the area, having a picnic in a cosy, informal and significant Danish way, combining high arts and simple joy.
Since 2002 more than 150.000 guests have enjoyed outdoor opera at the 3 evenings each year in the amphitheatre seating more than 3000 spectators.
Getting there is easy – by car or opera shuttle
It is merely a 30 minutes car ride from Copenhagen. Or you can get on the opera shuttle leaving from Ingerslevsgade (right behind the Copenhagen Central Station). Look for a green bus with the company name “KRUSE”. Book in advance at Roskilde@kruse-as.dk. A return ticket is DEK 100,- paid in cash directly to the driver. A free introduction to the opera is given in the bus en route.
