Join us for an informal night out at Kulturhuset in the heart of Bergen - either just enjoy listening or sing along!

Please note that there will be no OperaPub in March 2024 – because Bergen National Opera is busy with rehearsals and performances of Die Fledermaus. We will back at Kulturhuset on Wednesday 10th of April. Please also check the schedule below, and also updates on Facebook.

This is an informal night out for opera lovers and a chance to hear emerging talents in a relaxed atmosphere: The singers are amateurs, students, chorus members and also visiting soloists to BNO and Bergen. In addition to opera you may hear a hit from a musical, folk songs – and also freshly made music performed for the first time

For the audience: Free entry, and no ticket is needed.
If you wish to perform: Please contact BNO's Artistic Coordinator Møyfrid Engeset at in advance to check if there still are free slots in the concert schedule. She also needs to know your plans and ideas about repertoire, and you as a performer should also provide the music sheets on e-mail for the pianist.

It will be possible to have a run through with our pianist in the venue before the concert starts, normally half an hour earlier.

Please note that this is an acoustic concert, with no sound mixer available for singers or instruments – only a single microphone for the introductions.
