How can I be a performer at the Bergen International Festival?
Artists performing at the Bergen International Festival have been invited by the Festival. The Festival’s Chief Executive Officer and artistic director, Anders Beyer, has the overall responsibility for the artistic program. The planning of each year’s Festival – 15 days of concerts and performances by the world’s leading artists within classical music, theatre, opera and dance – is an ongoing process. Projects and programmes are often developed with companies and individual artists several years in advance.
If you think that you or your company has an exciting programme to offer, that the Bergen International Festival is missing, then send an email to email@example.com or send the information to Festspillene i Bergen, Postboks 183 Sentrum, 5804 Bergen, Norway.
We receive a lot of information, and unfortunately do not have the opportunity to confirm receipt or return material.
