Bergen National Opera and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra present a week with exceptional singing.

Norwegian star soprano Lise Davidsen presents a recital with James Baillieu in the University ́s Aula, and the following night, the Dronning Sonja International Competition winners sing with previous laureates and BFO.

At Den Nationale Scene, BNO presents two spectacular recitals – a Russian evening with Vladimir Dmitruk, recently featured in BNO ́s Werther, and Bolshoi favourite, soprano Oxana Shilova.

Saturday night, we can look forward to musical favourites and surprises when welcoming the well known British actor and singer Janie Dee, directly from London’s West End.
