The Norwegian National Opera Orchestra


During opera and ballet performances you can hear them from the orchestra pit, but in recent seasons the Norwegian National Opera Orchestra has also performed their own independent concerts on stage. Music Director John Helmer Fiore presents the Norwegian National Opera Orchestra with ever greater artistic challenges by focusing increasingly on orchestral concerts of symphonic music in their own name, which has contributed to a significant improvement in quality. Several of the musicians are also enthusiastic chamber music performers and give Saturday concerts throughout the season featuring their own favourites.
