Opera Pub in Oslo

Experience some of Norway’s best opera singers perform varied and magical opera arias in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere every Wednesday at Cafe Amsterdam in Oslo.

Cafe Amsterdam in cooperation with the organization “Opera to the People” will be converted from a traditional Dutch pub (only one in Norway serving ‘bitterballs’) to an Opera pub with exciting (and sometimes famous) opera singers, or should we say performers.

The aim of ‘Opera to the People’ is as their name implies, to make opera an art form for everybody. Opera to the People is now in its 14th year.
