Family Opera – The Little Sweep

Family Opera – The Little Sweep

Opera Kort & Godt is a new concept where Opera For The People present short versions of loved and famous operas, or one act operas. Few of these operas will have an endurance above 75 minutes. It is a particular pleasure for us to present opera at Christiania Theatre again, because the history of this theatre dates back to 1918, when it was opened with the name “Opera Comique”.
