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.
