OSLO THEATRES - THEATRE IN OSLO NORWAY

Oslo National TheatreOslo Theatre – Oslo theatres have a lot on offer in the way of classic theatre and shows, and all the performances are of are a high standard. When going out to the theatre in Oslo, the dress code is normally smart or smart/casual. You can make a phone call to the theatre, or check with reception in the hotel about the dress code if you wish.

If you are looking for more of a taste of Oslo, then you would be recommended to go to the National Theatre, where they show mainly Norwegian plays. The productions vary from modern plays to celebrated .classics, and the theatre has recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. At the end of August and the start of September the National Theatre in Oslo puts on an International Ibsen Festival.

The Black Box Theater hosts a number of national and international guest plays, as well as the annual Ultima festival of modern theatre. This makes it the ideal location for travellers to see a wide variety of quality productions, at a very reasonable price.

For those who prefer something quirky and unique, the Nordic Black Theatre is worth a visit. This theatre is a theatre and drama school aimed specifically at young people with origins in Third World countries. It is known for experimenting with alternative methods and forms of expression.

Finally, the Norwegian Theatre is a must see venue for those who like plays that are presented in nynorsk (contemporary Norwegian). This is because the Norwegian Theatre is the only theatre in Norway to offer plays in the country’s second language. Over the last few years it has been the most visited theatre in Norway.

If you are looking for something on the comedy side of theatre, then a visit to Oslo Nye offers a variety of choices. Productions include comedies, frequently contemporary, interspersed now and then with more hardboiled pieces and children’s plays. Make sure that you get a schedule in advance, as the plays can vary immensely.
