Skjønne Natt - a Christmas CD



Educated at the State Academy of Opera (Statens Operahøgskole), Norway, and the Norwegian Music Academy (Norges Musikkhøgskole), and with experience from individual concerts and operatic performances, the three musicians of "Opera i Tiden " (=Opera Today) have created a unique setting together, through which they contribute to opening the eyes of the young and old to this grandiose music of all times. Even those who thought they would never enjoy opera, have been moved by the trio’s performance, and have opened their hearts to it.

Opera i Tiden have performed at all kinds of venues - from great concert halls, to mountain ledges, ice-arenas and football stadions; from pubs, cafés and restaurants to a convent in Capri, Italy, The Seaman's Church in New York, a Medieval Castle in Denmark (www.nyborgslotskoncerter.dk), a Miner's pub in Svalbard, factories, designer boutiques, churches. They captivate their audience through their close and intimate approach and through their charm and humour. Any venue will do as long as there is a piano. And any audience will do, as long as they have a sense of the unexpected.

“Spitzenklasse!” (Franz Sauter, director of BMW)
“What joy!” (Paal Halvorsen – AVIS magazinet)
”Those who weren’t won over already, must have become so after tonight’s performance!”

“Vocally all there, and a performance full of energy!” and “Wonderful and audacious!” (Ann Iren Ødeby, Puls.no)
“Electric!” (Aristo, Riverside)
"...with conviction." (Svein Erik Tandberg, Tønsbergs Blad)
"...a great concert and people were thrilled..." (Eirik Fluge, The Norwegian Seamen's Church, New York)

Opera i Tiden have since March 2001 performed together on numerous different occasions and arenas in Norway and abroad: New York (USA), Capri (Italy), Hamburg (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), Nyborg (Denmark), various festivals and venues in Norway as well as on Norwegian TV and Radio.

They started working together in 2001 and have since then had shows and music written for them (such as "Cappuccinosongs" - a coffeeshop opera - by K.A.Vestad), and in 2004 they released their first CD - "Skjønne Natt" (Beautiful Night). This CD was highly acclaimed in Norwegian media.
