Welcome to Bergen National Opera

Dear friends,

I am so happy to welcome you all to Bergen, to the Norwegian continuation of the coproduction of “Den Glade Enke”, which started in Copenhagen last fall, with some of you involved already.

Our version has been translated and “Bergenized” by Eric del Barco Soleglad, who also plays the role of Zeta in our production. We do hope to continue the success of this production from Copenhagen, and we look forward to share your work with the audience here in Bergen.

I am still in my first season as Artistic Director for Bergen National Opera, and I am delighted that this Norwegian/Danish coproduction takes place at such an early stage.

Special welcome to all our friends and colleagues from Copenhagen; Kasper Holten and his team.

As you will notice, Bergen is a beautiful city – make sure you also find time to visit our fish market, take a trip to Fløyen, and have a walk in one of the surrounding mountains or the atmospheric city center.

We don’t know the exact covid situation until shortly before we meet in February, since this is changing very fast. But we might need to ask you to limit your number of contacts during your free time in Bergen. As the virus is causing less and less serious symptoms, the real threat to our production now is primarily that people are testing positive at a critical time, thus being prevented from participating in important rehearsals and performances.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon – enjoy!
