14 and 17 June, Norwegian Opera & Ballet: A Norwegian opera about the witch trials, in a concert performance
Anne Pedersdotter, by Edvard Fliflet Bræin (1924–1976), premièred at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo in 1971. Since that time, the opera has been produced on a number of occasions and has become something of a classic in Norwegian operatic history. It now returns to the Oslo Opera, this time in a concert format.
Anne is married to Absalon, a much older man. Absalon has a son, Martin, from a previous marriage. Martin is the same age as his father’s new wife. Sparks fly when the two first meet each other. But is this the work of Satan?
The story unfolds as an intense family drama, between man and wife in a marriage with a significant age-gap.
Music: Edvard Fliflet Bræin
Libretto: Hans Kristiansen after a drama Hans Wiers-Jenssens drama
Conductor: Peter Szilvay
Performed in Norwegian with English subtitles.
