A Fan Review of Alexander Rybak’s Musical “Trolle og den magiske fela

REVIEW OF “TROLLE OG DEN MAGISKE FELA” AT KILDEN THEATRE, NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2019

By Jane, London , UK

I was fortunate to be able to attend both the opening and closing nights of “Trolle” in Kristiansand. This meant that, when I first saw it, I didn’t know what to expect, but when I saw it again I was able to focus more on detail.
I knew the music and had an idea of the plot – but how would it translate into a full performance (and one in a language that I only have the very basics of)? Before I went I tried to find translations of as many of the songs as I could, which helped, but couldn’t find key songs either in English or Norwegian. I was going to have to hope for the best. Would there be much spoken dialogue? If not, it was going to be quite a short evening as the album runs just over 45 minutes.

“It is quite fun that Trolle and Alexander appeals to people outside of Norway. The first ticket for this year’s Christmas show was sold to a lady from Ireland. This was already in January this year. People from Slovakia and Denmark bought tickets right afterwards, so Rybak’s fans have been out early”

Janneke Aulie,
Sales and marketing manager at Kilden Theater and Concert Hall.

“Trolle og den magiske fela” is a fairy tale about daring to be different and accepting what is different from others. Alexander Rybak had an ensemble of talented actors on stage with him who, together and with spectacular scenography and captivating music, enchanted their audience from start to finish.

My dear fans. ❤️ Thank you SO MUCH for giving me support from all the world. I’m so happy that you have united from so many different countries to come see my fairy tale. I have worked for so many years on this, and it means everything to me that you are enjoying yourselves. And as a bonus, you get to see the wonderful Stig Werner as my nemesis “Hulderkongen”😎

 NIELS PEETERS REPORTING

Borgholm is a beautiful small Swedish city on the island of Öland in the Baltic Sea.
It’s a nice place to visit. With the houses and the nature, you really feel like  you are in an Astrid Lindgren movie. It is one of the most popular summer resorts in Sweden. The Swedish Royal Family’s official summer Palace can be found just a couple of kilometres outside the city centre.

This year we travelled to Sweden for our summer holidays, and were able to visit Borgholm on 14th July to attend the Victoriadagen. Victoriadagen is an annual event on the island and is a tribute to the Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday. This year’s celebration was extra special for me because Alexander Rybak was one of the seven artists invited to take part in the 2018 concert.
