True to tradition, Kirsten Flagstad Festival arranges a grand opera concert open for everyone, but due to the corona situation will must make a drive-in opera in stead of the traditional concert at Stortorget. We hope many will show up and listen to this wonderful concert at Hamar Airport The sound will be streamed right into your car’s sound system.
This concert will be open to public as long as you are in your cars, but you have to buy a ticket through TicketCo.
Press Buy Ticket at the left on this page.
This concert is made possible through a gift from Sparebankstiftelsen Hedmark and our main sponsor OBOS.
We encourage everyone to pimp their car. Decorate your car so it looks like an opera box or a scene from an opera! Bring some delicious food and make this into an unforgettable evening.
We intend to stream the concert on a big screen that can be seen from Mjøsa as well. So feel free to pimp your boat in an operatic fashion and come join us!
A Digital festival
The Kirsten Flagstad Festival will be ONLINE this year, and will thereby be an INTERNATIONAL festival. We will make Kirsten Flagstads 125 year jubilee available for the entire opera world! We celebrate one of the world’s most famous sopranos, who was called “ The Voice of the century”. For those who do not know, Kirsten Flagstad was born in Hamar July 12th 1895.

Kirsten Flagstad 125 years anniversary
On July 12th 2020, it will be 125 year since Kirsten Flagstad was born in Hamar. This has to be celebrated despite the current strict rules and in a society which is partly shut down. The Kirsten Flagstad Festival does also celebrate a 15 years anniversary in 2020. Due to this, it was not an option for us to cancel. We will hereby welcome to this year’s DIGITAL festival. In addition we will welcome you to a drive-in-Opera at Hamar Airport, a festival service for a few in Hamar Church, and opera for children where we can have live audience. You may purchase tickets to a concert in Hamar Theatre at Thursday June 18th and another concert in Hamar Cultural House at Saturday June 20th. The rest of our varied programme will be sent directly to you digitally.
