O. Professionals Programme

16 - 18 May 2024

O. Professionals Programme:
Thursday 16 May – Saturday 18 May 2024 

O. Professionals Programme celebrates the innovative, incessant, and poignant Music Theater scene. This year’s special edition includes MTNow 2023 competition award winners and jury members. During the 3-day O. Professionals Programme you can find in one place international and local, experienced and emergent, programmers and makers. O. weaves experiences around performances, panels, meals, and what is in between to invoke thought-provoking discussions with a personal touch.

You can see the programme here.

Have a peek on MTNow 2023 selected shows and jury that are our inspiration for the O. Professionals Programme and they will be with us in Rotterdam. Some of them will host presentations of their work, and some others will perform during O.

Please notice that the programme starts on Thursday May 16th in the morning, therefore, if you are traveling from abroad the best would be to arrive on May 15th  to enjoy most of it.

The last conference session will be held on Saturday 18 morning, and the joint programme ends around lunch-time. Saturday afternoon and evening are packed with options. We will offer you some recommendations later on.

How can you join O. Professionals Programme?
3 different ways to be part of the 3-day event

TIP! Your stay in Rotterdam
Rotterdam is the center for several events coming May, and hotels are rapidly full and prices going high. For that reason, we have reserved several rooms in the Holiday Inn for O. Professionals Programme participants. Please follow this link and make a reservation (available for the dates 15 May until 19 May). We strongly advise taking care of your accommodation rather soon!
