The baroque opera Ernelinde


Ernelinde, princess of Norway – an impossible choice

This is an opera event; for the first time in modern times, Ernelinde is resurrected! Experience a full-blooded baroque opera, with Orkester Nord and soloists from Paris.

Grand opera with hundreds on stage. Ernelinde is a musical turning point in French opera from the second half of the 18th century. The costumes and scenery were some of the most extravagant things anyone had seen. The performance in the opera in Versailles must have involved four hundred soldiers on horseback, smoke, flames and large-scale war scenes.

The beautiful and dramatic music was written to match this spectacular performance of the very rare. The music was celebrated as masterful, magnificent and ravishing. This highly dramatic opera is set in Norway – of all places.
