Opera Stand-Up – Opera, politics, and piece and stuff…

Really? The leader of the festival and Opera For The People, Gjøril Songvoll, has committed to a rather interesting duo with the tenor, comedian and State Secretary to the Minister of Culture, Bjørgulv Vinje Borgundvaag. Together they’ve created a hilarious show that combines both satirical punchlines and opera-hits! Apparently, someone even wanted to report them to the police after seeing their show!

Tickets can be bought at the door 30 min. before the show starts
