Northern Lights Festival

By Linda Tancs

Nordlysfestivalen (The Northern Lights Music Festival) begins in Tromsø, Norway tomorrow through 5 February.  About 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, the annual event is known for musical performances in various genres.  This year is no exception.  One of the festival’s highlights is the performance of The State Hermitage Orchestra from St. Petersburg, slated to perform Russian music and to host the Opera Gala, a concert introducing two of the finest young singers from the Mariinsky Theatre in a collaboration with singers from the Norwegian Opera.  Later in the festival, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra will visit Norway for the first time ever.  And, of course, there are those northern lights–aurora borealis–presiding over it all.
