THE OPERA L’amour de loin is the opening event of this year’s festival. The production is a collaboration between the Bergen International Festival and The New Opera and will be set and directed by Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. The artistic duo gives promise of an unusual opera, where the singers will provide voices for an entirely animated stage performance.
