Humorous Christmas medley a capella in an intense tempo, solo performances and beautiful singing. And Rudolf`s nose is still red. It`s easy to see that the bunch is having a great time.

Tranquil and beautiful night at Herøy church.

The Christmas concert “Silent Night Holy Night” with the Norwegian top artists Elisabeth Andreassen, Marian Aas Hansen, Tor Endresen, Rune Larsen and recently also improved with Alexander Rybak, also gathered a sold out church in Herøy and created a nice Christmas mood for a stressed out pre-Christmas mind.

There are no sour herring here. Christine Koht and Alexander Rybak didn’t even hesitate when Elisabeth Andreassen invited them to a real Swedish herring table.

The atmosphere is good when Bettan serves a delicious herring table. Christine Koht is a teetotaler and toasts with water, while Alexander Rybak is a gentleman, making sure that everyone is having a good time.

Welcome

COMING BACK: Elisabeth Andreassen, Didrik Solli-Tangen and Alexander Rybak are coming back to Klubben this year. This is from the show last year.

Found by Ulli C. Translation (of the part concerning Alexander) by Tessa Lande.

Sandefjord has no chance

Christne Koth takes care of the humour, while Rybak, Bettan and Didrik take care of the rest. Oseberg promises the best summer show ever, and the Lattergal is hiding in the wings.

– Hotel Klubben already has the summer show menu prepared. We welcome back the BAD gang, meaning Bettan (Elisabeth Andreassen), Alexander Rybak and Didrik Solli-Tangen. And last but not least, we present a newly written musical performance for children. Alexander Rybak is the main character on the stage, and he is also involved in writing the screenplay and music. We are really looking forward to this. The kids love Alexander, and we think it is important to offer quality also in a children’s show,- the hotel manager says.

He is the director of the show which opens the season at the Hotel Klubben this summer. A show that has been given the telling name “Bettan, Alexander & Didrik.”
