Kulturhuset in Vaskerelven 8

Playing time

1 hour


Free entrance

Join us for an informal night out at Kulturhuset in the heart of Bergen - either just enjoy listening or perform yourself!
The last OperaPub this spring is in collaboration with Bergen International Festival, and starts at 10 pm/22:00.

At the OperaPub you get to listen to singers in a relaxed atmosphere. For the audience: The entrance is free, and no ticket is needed.

If you wish to perform: Please contact BNO's Artistic Coordinator Møyfrid Engeset at in advance to check if there still are free slots in the concert schedule. She also needs to know your plans and ideas about repertoire, and you as a performer should also provide the music sheets on e-mail for the pianist.

It will be possible to have a run through with our pianist in the venue before the concert starts, normally half an hour earlier.

General information
Bergen National Opera's OperaPub has been a success since it first opened in 2014, and has visited different venues in the city. This is an informal night out for opera lovers and a chance to hear emerging talents in a relaxed atmosphere: The singers are amateurs, students, chorus members and also visiting soloists to BNO and Bergen. In addition to opera you may hear a hit from a musical, folk songs – and also freshly made music performed for the first time.
