“I can promise a Christmas performance in the best sense of the word, not only a festive atmosphere but also dignified, not only playful but with lots of melancholy.” – Øyen
In 2015 was winter guests’ first direct collaboration with The Norwegian Opera & Ballet.
What happens when a bunch of world-weary actors (all with a rather complicated relationship to the festive season) are asked to create a Christmas show in collaboration with a handful of overworked dancers from the Norwegian National Ballet?
In the ensuing chaos, dancers talk until they’re blue in the face, actors dance like their lives depended on it and (despite a marked lack of talent) everyone sings for Jesus… but hey, it’s Christmas!!!
