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.
