WHO am I? 

The Shirabe Festival 2024 is centred around the question of identity. Who am I? Where do I come from? What do I exist for? Questions that each of us asks at some point. But we dare to go further and tackle the question of cultural identity. What is that anyway? And: can I identify with another culture? Maybe I find my own identity by exploring others… From classical music, jazz, and pop to the avant-garde, no genre is neglected. Because in the end, one thing is clear: it's the diversity that makes us special.

Swan song - Schubert of the 21st century?! 

A balancing act between classical and pop. Frank Havrøy and Gunnar Flagstad reinterpret Schubert's masterpieces in an entertaining, fresh and surprising way. Still classical - or already pop?

"Who am I?" 

A chamber music opera gala with masterpieces of classical music, operetta, jazz and pop, as well as two world premieres by composers Bjørn Kruse and Kjell Habbestad. This performance tells the story of two young women in search of the meaning of life. One searches for it through love, the other through her career - but where does one ultimately find the meaning of life?
