The Grieg Foundation supports numerous charitable projects worldwide, with emphasis on projects that involve children and youth, medical research and the environment. The Grieg Foundation makes an active commitment to ensure necessary support and progress, and contribute in ways that make a difference. Grieg Foundation is one of the main sponsors behind SOS Children’s Villages.
Within art and culture their main focus is on Western Norway, and the foundation has been an important supporter of cultural life in Bergen for many years, including the construction of Oseana Art and Culture Center and The Grieg Collection, the opera scene in Bergen and other cultural events.
The Bergen International Festival has been a recurrent name when the foundation bestows their gifts, and we are very pleased that they wish to take part in this festival tradition in Bergen. Their contribution enables us to create a comprehensive children’s and outdoor programme that let children, adolescents and adults take part in and watch good performances – and enjoy the festival atmosphere.
Support has been crucial in making possible this year’s festival staging of the opera The Barber of Seville.
The Bergen International Festival would like to thank the Grieg Foundation for their support.
