Oslo Opera House

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Maudy Thursday is a public holiday in Norway and we decided to go for an Easter concert in the Oslo Opera House.

The Opera House is relatively new, it opened in 2008, and has a quite unique architecture and superb acoustics. We got to know this and a lot more (and also saw the costume production plus a sneek peek backstage) during a very interesting guided tour that I got as a Birthday present from Per and Ingrid…NICE, thanks again friends!!!

The concert itself was great too; first a mix of piano excerpts performed by Josephine Hsieh, followed by the NEDT brass ensemble performing various popular and classical parts on trumpet, horn and trombone.

It was truly fantastic…hehe, I *LOVE* to listen to live music!!
