Bergen National Opera and De Bergenske invite you to join us in a three day opera festival at Grand Hotel Terminus.

After several highly successful events at Bergen's most historic hotel, BNO and De Bergenske have created a mini 3-day opera festival for October. With wine, food and arias events on Thursday 11 and Friday 12, Saturday's programme begins with Afternoon tea with music and stories relating to the evening's opera, Carmen. In a specially created chamber version directed by John Ramster, the opera features an international cast of spectacular young artists, along with the opportunity to celebrate Spain with tapas and selected wines.
