Free entrance with ticket from Operaen

Experience the revolt in Paris in 1871 as a gateway to our own time.

The Paris Commune is the leading character in this commissioned piece. Notices from the Paris Commune is the first larger collaboration between Bornstein, Iunker and Wilhite-Hannisdal, who together with soloists from the National Opera and singers from the Opera Choir dramatize one of the most important social uprisings in modern time.

The work takes the form of a film, with video design by Lesia Vasylchenko, Together with the Opera, we invite you to the premiere in the Formidlingssenteret at the Opera House.
