Alexander Rybak in the theatre play “Soot-Spelet” 2015

Engebret Soot was a big admirer of the famous Norwegian violinist Ole Bull. In the theatre play “Soot-Spelet” there is a scene where Engebret Soot travels to Oslo for one of his concerts. He was delayed and the concert was over when he arrived.  Engebret Soot was not a man who gave in easily, so he went to the hotel where Ole Bull stayed, woke him up  and demanded him to play for him.

The video is recorded by Ulli C, translated to English by TessaLa and revised by Anni Jowett. Azerbaijani by Azadə İmranzadə. German by Ulli C, Turkish by Behire Nilüfer.
