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.
Call in by phone! - connect to Opera Houses all over Europe, have a chat with your own personal 'opera usher' who will guide you round productions which were cancelled due to the corona crisis.

PHONE AND EXPERIENCE THE UNEXPECTED
When you phone in you speak with real people on the other end: a singer, director, costume designer, make-up person, etc – people all closely related to an opera production from across Europe, cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19.
Bergen National Opera has teamed up with Sound Artist Zoë Irvine to explore a different kind of listening using an 'opera call centre'. THIS EVENING’S PERFORMANCE HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED gives us all the unique opportunity to reach the theatre by phone.
