Den Norske Opera & Ballett

We Shall Make Life Greater

The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet consists of the companies the Norwegian National Ballet and the Norwegian National Opera, in addition to the Opera Orchestra, the Opera Chorus, the Children’s Chorus and the Ballet School.

The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet presents operas, ballets and concerts of the highest artistic quality, within a broad stylistic range and accessible to the broadest possible audience. As the only national institution within its art forms, we also contribute to the development of creative projects and producing opera and ballet activities across the country.

A flagship project:
In “Opera on the Schedule” 10-Year-olds are taught song and drama over 13 Weeks. The opera fable “Funiculi and Funicula” is then performed in the school.

Why we’re RESEO members:
RESEO brings us closer to colleagues and projects from across Europe, and keeps us updated on valuable work and ongoing debates in our field.
