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 deilighted 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 Alex 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 trip with the funicular «Fløibanen», and have a walk in the atmospheric city center.

Looking foreward to seeing you all soon – enjoy!

From Bergen with love,

Eivind
