Miss Saigon - HOVEDTRAILER I Premiere 1. september 2023

Miss Saigon - HOVEDTRAILER I Premiere 1. september 2023

Miss Saigen er en av de mest ikoniske musikalene noensinne, nå kommer den endelig til Folketeateret!🎵🧡 Skapt av den legendariske duoen Claude-Michel Schönberg og Alain Boublil, som også stod bak den berømte musikalen "Les Misérables," har Miss Saigon beveget og begeistret publikum over hele verden. Om du likte Les Misérables og The Phantom of the Opera, kommer du til å elske Miss Saigon! Musikalen tar oss med til Saigon under Vietnamkrigen på 1970-tallet. Det er en moderne gjenfortelling av den klassiske operaen "Madame Butterfly" og følger den hjerteskjærende historien om Kim, en ung vietnamesisk kvinne, og Chris, en amerikansk soldat. Deres skjebner blir sammenflettet på en måte som utfordrer kjærlighetens grenser og konfronterer de brutale realitetene i krigens ettervirkninger. 🎼Musikken i Miss Saigon er en viktig grunn til hvorfor den har blitt en tidløs klassiker. Musikken er enestående og viser nok en gang komponistenes evne til å skape musikalske mesterverk. Claude-Michel Schönberg, kjent for sine minneverdige verk som "Do You Hear the People Sing," "On My Own," og "I Dreamed a Dream" fra "Les Misérables," har skapt et partitur som er like mektig og følelsesladd. Musikalen krever et stort orkester, og som vanlig fyller vi orkestergraven på Folketeateret med musikere for å kunne gjengi den storslåtte lydverdenen. Orkesteret i "Miss Saigon" kan på mange måter sammenlignes med det i "Les Misérables," både når det gjelder stil og størrelse. Musikken er hjertet som styrer alt som skjer på scenen. Miss Saigon er et verk som har rørt og berørt mennesker over hele verden. Musikalen er vår største satsning noen sinne! Vi kan love deg en mektig opplevelse du sent vil glemme. 🎭 Musikalen spilles fra september til november 2023 og vi anbefaler deg å være raskt ute om du vil sikre deg billetter til denne storslåtte opplevelsen!


"Olav den heldige og Ranes hemmelighet is a magical, entertaining, funny and exciting performance that is worth seeing (...) Director Martine Tufvesson Lundberg lets the adult actors shine, the children impress and the extras complement the scenography in a great way. Set design, choreography, costume design, sound, lighting and music also deserve praise. You believe in the magic that happens on stage, often with simple and effective means."

Adresseavisen, Olav den heldige 2022

«Martine Tufvesson Lundberg has chosen to infuse her version of the show with heavy use of realism (...) Their vulnerability is honest and heartfelt (...) It’s definetly a comedy, but it’s true power is in the balancing act between being comedic and serious.”
Broadwayworld, I blanke messingen 2022

"Your children will be eternally grateful if you take them on this one. Rarely have I seen a more enthusiastic audience of all ages. I choose to quote a young boy of around ten or twelve years of age whom I overheard on the way out after the performance: This is the best Christmas present I have ever received, mum, and I want exactly the same ticket for next Christmas too.

Nettavisen, The Wizard of Oz 2019

"Director Martine Tufvesson Lundberg has had a very steady hand in instructing many actors who unfold over a large physical area. The result is definitely a family musical for the whole family. As we strolled towards the car in the lovely moonlight, there were some boys behind us who excitedly discussed the midgard worm among themselves. Like after a superhero movie at the cinema.”


Sarpsborg Arbeiderblad, Olav den heldige 2022

“It's been a long time since I've heard so many laugh so well. It is of course thanks to good efforts and the band, but not least producer Philip Bøckmann and director Martine Tufvesson Lundberg. Both are still only in their early 30s, but nevertheless already experienced in the industry, and have managed to turn the full monty into an Østfold celebrated performance (...) It is no small task to stage one of the musical world's great titles, which in addition, is one of the most successful films in history. Then it's extra fun that the ensemble delivers to a standing ovation."

Sarpsborg Arbeiderblad, The full monty 2022

"In Blindpassasjer, the lead character presents the experiences of living with only a thin strip of freeboard between the spark of life and depression. It has become an important performance conveyed without finger-pointing "bessewisseri" but with an injecting sincerity, almost so that it stings. The performance also communicates our times focus on achievements, and not on the person. Six on the dice!"

Fredriksstad Blad, Blindpassasjer 2019

"There have been great expectations ahead of the musical about Albert and Leonie. And now we can reveal: They will be fulfilled all as one. The performance has simply turned out fantastically well"

Hardanger Folkeblad, Albert og Leonie 2019

"With vivid scenography, inventive costumes and masks, magical lighting and effects, driving fast personal direction and, above all, the immortal music, The Wizard appears as the equipment show it should be."

Aftenposten, The Wizard of Oz 2019

"Anniken and her sister have been responsible for the translation. It cannot have been an easy job, but the two of them come out of it with flying colors. In addition, the latter has directed the first act, while Patrick Hilmar Ingvaldsen has directed the second and last act. It works perfectly seamlessly, and both do their jobs with great passion."

Fredriksstad Blad, Heathers 2023

Martine gives room to reflect. As an educator she sees me for the human being I am, not only what I do - at the same time that she makes more demands than anyone else. I feel incredibly lucky.

Martine's teaching is a constant source of inspiration. I am grateful to know that I can always ask for help when I want to spark new thoughts and be challenged in a space that feels safe and open.
