Overview

From 20 November, Norwegian Opera & Ballet: Classical fun for ordinary people

Comedian Vidar Magnussen debuts as director at the Oslo Opera House, with high party factor, serious social criticism, a whole lot of sheep and fantastic music.

This is exactly what is needed right now: a wacky world of gods where the party never ends and everyone dances the can-can!
At any rate, that is what Eurydice longs for. She is tired of the tedious Orpheus and being at his beck and call for what seems like an eternity. The time has come to say no, to laugh and to enjoy an operetta!

Offenbach's Orpheus toys with the well-known myth, with upper-class taste and with power-hungry authorities. In Paris in 1858, some found this offensive, while others considered it to be liberating and exciting. Both die-hard fans and the offended had plenty of opinions on Orpheus in the Underworld. However, all of them were already incorporated into the performance as 'public opinion'.
