The International Ibsen Festival 2014

The International Ibsen Festival is a celebration of Norway’s most important playwright and his ground-breaking work with the theatrical conventions of his time.
The International Ibsen Festival 2014 is now history and interest from the public has been at a record high. Over 18,000 people attended the festival!
The next festival will take place in Autumn 2016 and from September 2015 we will welcome suggestions of guest productions who might fit the bill.
According to Hanne Tømta, head of the National Theatre, this year’s Ibsen Festival has reinforced its position as Norway’s largest and most important theatre festival.
Oslo has been filled over the last few weeks with the cream of international performing arts, thrilling critics and visitors alike. Interest from the public has been record high with over 18,000 people attending the festival.
The festival had a wide programme of events and the National Theatre had a record number of visitors to the various seminars, lectures, discussions and artist meetings.
We are especially delighted that we have received fantastic feedback from international guests and so far more than 10 requests for Nationaltheatret to take our own shows abroad.
