The Operafestukene opera festival starts on Thursday 2 February in Kristiansund and runs until 18 February. More than sixty concerts and performances will be held in the town. Norway's largest opera festival brings together both professional soloists from across Norway, as well as amateurs and volunteers from across the region.
This year's main performances - The Troubadour (Il trovatore) and The Riviera Girl (Die Csárdásfürstin) are staged at conventional opera venues, while many of the smaller performances and concerts during the opera festival are held in more intimate settings around town.
