50 minutes

Here is a rare opportunity to experience five fantastic female dancers and two outstanding musicians perform a modern interpretation of the mysteries of the female body and its rites of passage.

With Mamelukk – a Norwegian company of contemporary dancers.

The performance is a part of Den Ny Opera’s Summerfestival 2023. Buy a festivalpass and grant access to all the events of the festival.

The fact that they use a traditional male dance from Norway, a so-called Halling, makes this an intriguing experience for everyone.

The female body constantly changes in cycles from month to month and with age. She faces both pain and liberation in the rites of passage from childhood through adulthood and to old age. Pregnancy and motherhood both marks the body for life and makes it incredibly strong.

Together with the musicians the contemporary dancers will deliver a modern, humorous, and powerful interpretation of the mysteries of the female body.

kl. 15.00

In this daring hybrid between stand-up comedy and opera Lisbeth Kjærulf, soprano, Lars Møller, baritone and pianist Peter Møllerhøj will take a close but humorous look at some of the most offensive and controversial issues found in opera.



Fill up your glasses and join the musical party! The violinist Bjarte Eike and his merry companions recreate the sounds, stories and the spirit of a 17th century English tavern, through humour, virtuosity and a great deal of improvisation.
