The award winning Norwegian soprano Marita Sølberg sings a discerning selection of songs inspired by William Shakespeare's texts.

Marita Sølvik presents an evening with rare and exciting music in Håkonshallen. The world-class soprano has chosen songs whose texts are the source of inspiration for great music and vocal splendour. This special occasion will offer works by Brahms, Schubert, Korngold and, amongst others, the somewhat unknown Roger Quilter, who wrote more than 100 beautiful songs in the romantic style.

John Lidal accompanies her on the piano, whilst the famous Norwegian actor Karl Bomann-Larsen completes the program by reading selected Shakespeare sonnets.
