Plans for March 2019 already? No?

Wait, just a second, don't panic - this is not about the Violeta musical (that one is penciled in for fall 2019 at the moment). But it's still about theater and music, more precisely music composed by Janove Ottesen. At the end of March 2019, the theater play "The Mute" will premiere in Stavanger. What is special about this play is that it doesn't use any words, but only acting and music. Or, as orchestra leader Gaute Aadnesen says: "The Mute is a love story told without retorts, without words, music is the language. The performance is hard to explain beforehand, but will be magically self-explanatory when you experience it live." You can find more information in the press release here.

Currently, three shows are scheduled on March 29 and 30, 2019. The first two are close to sold out already. Get your tickets here!

Friday night was a big night in Bryne (or maybe even for Bryne?) - the Kaizers square was officially opened! Except for Terje, who is currently on tour with Skambankt, all Kaizers were there. They received diplomas from the mayor, and in return, they gave away the first Kaizer poster that ever existed. A local band played before the ceremony, and afterwards, there was a light show. Of course media covered the whole thing, so here are a few links to videos and photos:

Tonight, the Kaizers square in Bryne will be officially inaugurated! NRK has published a few pictures already of the decorations on the square, including oil barrels, a lamp, and visual effects. Five of the ex Kaizers will be present at tonight's opening ceremony - number six will be on stage in Oslo at that time. =;-) More information is available in the Facebook event.

Janove isn't the only one with a new album out: Skambankt just released their new album "Horisonten brenner" last Friday! And all reviewers seem to agree that it is awesome. =:-)
