A Night at the Icelandic Opera

Watch this audio slideshow of pictures taken before and during one of the performances of The Magic Flute, the Icelandic Opera’s first production at its new home in Harpa, the new concert and conference hall in Reykjavík, in October and November. In March 2012, Puccini’s La Boheme will be staged.

-----------------------

The Icelandic Opera moved into its new home at Harpa, the new concert and conference hall at Reykjavík’s waterfront earlier this year. Its first opera at the new facilities was Mozart’s The Magic Flute, which premiered in October.

The six original performances all sold out and to meet demand two additional performances were held, the last on November 26.

These pictures were taken by Geir Ólafsson before and during one of the performances of The Magic Flute. “Papageno’s Song” performed by Ágúst Ólafsson; courtesy of the Icelandic Opera.

The Icelandic Opera is now preparing its next production, of Puccini’s La Boheme, scheduled to premiere in March 2012. Tickets are available on harpa.is.
