The Bartók Plus Opera Festival - Bartók Plusz Operafesztivál in Hungarian, and also known as the Miskolc Opera Festival - is an annual festival held every summer in Miskolc, the capital of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén in north-east Hungary. The festival was created in 2001 by Péter Müller Sziámi, former artistic director of the National Theatre of Miskolc, which is the festival's main venue.
Each year the festival spotlights the works of Béla Bartók plus other composers. It also runs an opera composition competition.
