Summer concert: Opera by the fjord 2021

Playing period

21. August 2021

Place

Oseana

Playing time

approx. 2 hours

Here comes the grand finale of our Summer Academy: All of the young singers, instrumentalists and four conductors are ready to dive into operatic highlights in a concert at Oseana.

Singers and instrumentalists aged 18-30 have worked intensely, guided by their coaches, at the first ever Summer Academy "Opera at the fjord" 16.-21. August 2021, and are now prepared to present it all to the audience. Four different conductors will also enter the podium: Our new Artistic Director Eivind Gullberg Jensen opens the show, followed by the two young conductor talents - and Sascha Goetzel from Vienna.

Excerpts from several of the most beloved operas, like Bizet's Carmen and Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss are on the programme, as well as funny - and also tearful - Italian arias by Bellini, Rossini and Puccini.

Together with the Austrian conductor Sascha Goetzel the academists are also inviting us to the musical world of W. A. Mozart, with the finale from act 2 of Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) and also highlights from Don Giovanni and Der Schauspieldirektor (The Impresario).
