Aulaseriene: Grieg & Garborgs Haugtussa


A unique combination of Garborg's original texts and Grieg's settings.

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of national poet Arne Garborg. One of Norwegian literature's best-selling poetry collections of all time, Haugtussa, is both eternally relevant and popular. In this concert performance, the original Garborg texts and Edvard Grieg's settings have been given a very special composition curated by Norway's theatre man, Ola B. Johannessen. 

In 2024, Ola B.'s 85th birthday will also be celebrated through these performances, which will be performed in large parts of the country during the year. The audience is taken along on young Veslemøy's longing journey on the roller coaster of love, where Garborg's texts are recited by Johannessen and Grieg's beautiful songs are interpreted by Eir Inderhaug and Thormod Rønning Kvam.
