Bergen National Opera presents "This evening's performance has not been cancelled"

Conceived by Sound Artist Zoë Irvine, this showcase will give audiences an opportunity to call in and speak to a singer, director, costume designer, make-up person, and other participants of an opera production across Europe that has been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19.
