Information related to Flaggermusen 2024

Welcome to Flaggermusen at Bergen National Opera

Dear friends,

I am very happy to welcome you all to Bergen, to our new and crazy production of Strauss’ Flaggermus/Fledermaus. After our success with «Den glade enke 2.0» a couple of years ago, we decided to give our audience a treat with a quite similar concept – a very famous operetta, with a new text based on familiar environment. Also this time, signed by the excellent Adam Price.

The ambitions for this production is very high, and time is limited, so I wish you all a very effective but nevertheless non-stressful rehearsal period.

I am very happy that we have got Yngve Sundvor and his team to lead you through the madness, from Exit environment through pink party in Bergen to a grand finale at the NECC (Økokrim).

A warm and special welcome to our conductor Alfred Eschwé from Vienna – together with a wonderful cast, I am sure he will teach us all a lot about this very viennese style🎶

As most of you know already, Bergen is a beautiful city – make sure you also find time to visit our fish market, take a trip with the funicular «Fløibanen», walk from Ulriken to Fløyen (2 of the 7 mountains) visit our museum complex «Kode», the beautiful house of Edvard Grieg at Troldhaugen, or simply have a walk in the atmospheric city center.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon – enjoy!

From Bergen with love,

Eivind ☺️

Norwegians love to talk about the weather! It changes from day to day, hour to hour, and we recommend bring clothes for both a rainy day as well as sunshine.

The standard way of paying is by credit card or bank card. Few locals pay with cash - even for a packet of chewing gum.
As for general shopping, all but kiosks and tourists shops are closed on Sundays. Restaurants, cafés and bars are open all week. If you're looking for a Sunday open supermarket we recommend Bunnpris, Torggaten 6, and/or Nygårdsgaten 89.
