Festival mass

Every year we make a Festival church service in cooperation with Hamar Domkirke. This year, there will be room for fewer in the audience than we are used to due to the distancing regulations. It will be an exclusive opportunity for a few to experience this service with musical performances by Caroline Wettergreen and Trond Våge.

 

You will need to register by purchasing a free ticket via TicketCo. We need to have a list over participants due to the corona situation regulations. If you for any reason are unable to attend, please let us know, so we can donate your ticket to someone else, and fill up the available seats.

 

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.

The 2020 Jubilee year.

On July 12th 2020, it will be 125 year since Kirsten Flagstad was born in Hamar. This has to me celebrated despite the current strict rules and in a society which is almost completely shut down. The Kirsten Flagstad Festival does also celebrate a 15 year jubilee 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 åttemetersplanet, a festival service for a few in Hamar Church, and opera for children at Stortorget. These three concerts are live-experiences, and the rest of our varied programme will be sent directly to you digitally. We will be able to open our doors at short notice for a concert a day at during the festival, if the rules should change.
