Once a month, you can hear the most beautiful arias in the wine bar, enjoyed with some light refreshments – great drinks and food. In cooperation with our friends at the Kirsten Flagstad Festival we can provide some of the best singers in the country, and the best quality all around.
Some of you will recognise Camilla from when she sang in Dido and Aeneas at Ringsakeroperaen some years ago. She is educated in Copenhagen and is one of Norway’s best lyric-dramatic sopranos. Magnus has already performed at our opera pub previously, but does also sing at the Norwegian Opera & Ballet and on several of the other Norwegian opera stages. Our own Tore Mortensen is well known to most of you!
Attending our Opera pub is the perfect way to get to better acquainted with opera. Here, you really get to experience opera “up close” and we know for a fact that many experience a revelation for the opera genre after having experienced opera arias served up in this informal way in such happy company.
This event will be live-streamed from Brødrene Jacobsen.
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.
