The New Opera collaborates with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bergen International Festival, the National Venue of Theatre in Bergen and Grieghallen.
Bergen Nasjonale Opera (Bergen National Opera), firmly rooted in Fjord Norway, is now established a major contributor to world-class opera produced nationally. As a flexible and adventurous company working with highly imaginative creative teams, they bring fresh eyes and ears to standard repertoire and present great operas as yet unknown to Norway along with a startling range of new projects for all ages.
Their casts combine dynamic young Nordic voices with celebrated international talents, and they are deeply committed to developing competence in all aspects of opera for the future. With the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra as their principal partner, BNO is increasingly attracting positive media attention, and kudos for its exciting programmes.
