DEAR RUSALKA TEAM

Dear friends,

I am so happy to welcome you all to Bergen, and my first production as Artistic Director for Bergen National Opera. And I am delighted to start my tenure with Rusalka, an opera which has been following me ever since I conducted the first Norwegian version of the work at the opening of the brand new operahouse in Oslo, in 2009.

Special welcome to my friend Àlex Ollé and his team from La Fura dels Baus - together with a fantastic cast, from whom I have worked with most of you already, I am sure we will have a great time.

Bergen is a beautiful city – make sure you also find time to visit our fish market, take a hike up to the mountain Fløyen and enjoy the view, or have a walk in the atmospheric city center.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon – enjoy!

From Bergen with love,

Eivind
