Lørdagsopera (Saturday afternoon opera)

Lørdagsopera (Saturday afternoon opera)

We are now entering our 13th season of Lørdagsopera (Saturday afternoon opera). Lørdagsopera has often been sold out in recent seasons and we have therefore decided to modify the concept a little. As ever, we promise high quality and a good atmosphere, beautiful arias, tragedy and drama in the best opera style but each Lørdagsopera performance will no longer have an individual title. The singers will introduce what they are about to sing and there will be well known and loved arias and duets and often also a theme running through the performance. The doors and the bar will open at 3:30 pm and the performance will begin at 4:30 pm and end at approx. 5:00 pm.


Siv Oda Hagerupsen, mezzosoprano
Magnus Dorholt Kjeldal, barytone
Bernhard Greter, piano

PublikUng is an organization aiming to lower the threshold for going to the opera and classical music concerts for young people. Its vision is both to spread interest in classical music and to make it more readily available to those between 18 and 30. PublikUng now has over 1,700 members and it costs nothing to become a member. There is only one rule and that is  that if you have received a free or very cheap ticket to a concert or performance the registration is binding and you must use your ticket. The first 4 PublikUng members to buy a ticket for Lørdagsopera (Saturday afternoon opera) get in free, all others pay only 50 kroner. Use this link to register
