Norwegian National Opera Postpones Productions Due to Strike

By Francisco Salazar

The Norwegian National Opera has postponed the premiere “Dead Man Walking” due to a strike in the cultural sector.

The company announced via social media that “we, unfortunately, have to cancel the rest of the performances of “One of a Kind.” We also have to postpone the premiere of “Dead Man Walking,” which should have been on Saturday. Anyone who bought a ticket will be contacted by email with more info. Baby opera in the foyer and Ultima concerts at Scene 2 going as planned this week. We hope that the strike will soon be over so that the repertoire will not be affected.”

“Dead Man Walking” was set to open on Sept. 18 and is set to run through Oct. 10, 2021.

The work will star Katarina Karnéus, Johan Reuter, Maija Skille, Aksel Rykkvin, Mathis Manger Winther, and Birgitte Christensen. The company is also set to perform “Eugene Onegin” this fall.
