On Sunday 21st August our very own Dan Silfwerin (Swedish and English teacher) was invited to perform in the finale of  ‘Mimi Goes Glamping’ at Åmot Operagard. The Bergen National Opera created a community opera based on the local Fjaler kommune story Murmartinstein i Fjella (Murmartinstein in the mountains).

Bergen National Opera’s director Tom Guthrie and chorus master Håkon Matti Skrede worked with members of the local community to build this opera based on folk music and songs – it also featured Sir Thomas Allen, one of the world’s most accomplished singers, in the role as the troll.

There was a large contingent of UWC RCN staff and families supporting Dan at the finale of the festival.
