You will be welcomed upon arrival with a glass of Prosecco or a non-alcoholic alternative. The concert itself starts around 7:30 PM, but it's nice to arrive a bit earlier to enjoy socializing in Børsen's elegant lounges before the evening's highlights. We'll be there to welcome you from around 7:00 PM and guide you to your seats. It's not necessary to bring tickets purchased on Ticketco; just provide your names to one of the festival staff.
For the right stylish atmosphere, round tables are set up in the hall.
The concert is divided into two sections, and this year's Champagne Concert features Eir Inderhaug, soprano, and pianist Jan Gunnar Sørbø. "Operagalskap" is a thrilling performance with soprano Eir Inderhaug and pianist Jan Gunnar Sørbø, both giving free rein to their creativity. Together, they present a broad and virtuosic program inspired by the world of opera. They offer wild ideas and brilliant collaboration in a performance primarily focused on opera. The entire show is infused with dazzling piano playing and impressive vocal prowess.
Between the two concert sections, a dinner and dessert, exquisitely prepared by Børsen Festlokaler, will be served. The ticket price also includes a beverage unit, with the option to purchase more if desired. This experience is available once a year! Attend alone or with others; each table accommodates 10 seats. Join forces with friends, acquaintances, or colleagues and reserve a table!
Eir Inderhaug, Soprano She received her education from the Rogaland Music Conservatory, the Opera Academy in Copenhagen, and soloist training at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. In 1991, Inderhaug won NRK's Talentiaden. She has performed opera, operetta, and musical roles in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and more. In Norway, she has been engaged with the Norwegian Opera and Ballet, Les Misérables at Trøndelag Theatre, Spelet om Heilag Olav at Stiklestad for twelve seasons, and Peer Gynt-stemnet at Gålåvatnet in 2007/2008. Her solo performance "Jeg ER Lucia" received excellent reviews and a six-star rating after being performed in Kristiansand, Trondheim, and Oslo in 2017. Fædrelandsvennen described it as "an opera festival that should captivate far beyond a regular audience," while Aftenbladet asserted that "Eir impresses greatly."
Jan Gunnar Sørbø, Pianist He holds degrees from the University of Stavanger, the Norwegian Academy of Music, the Hannover University of Music, Drama, and Media, and the Barratt-Due Institute of Music. Sørbø completed his soloist training and made his official debut at the Southern Danish Conservatory of Music in Odense. He has performed internationally as a soloist in Grieg's A-minor Concerto and Beethoven's Triple Concerto, touring in Slovakia, Denmark, Sweden, Georgia, France, and Germany. As one of the very few pianists, he has performed the entire Bach's "Das Wohltemperierte Klavier." In Norway, besides solo concerts, he has distinguished himself as an outstanding chamber musician and accompanist in various contexts, including being the pianist in the Stavanger Piano Quartet.
