Ingeborg Walther played the role of Alva in Alexander’s musical “Trolle og den magiske fela” in 2019.
When I first met Alexander at the audition, he seemed very kind. And it turned out to be a correct first impression.
Alexander said of Ingeborg in an interview -“Many applied to audition ( for the role of Alva), almost 300. But even if it had been 3000, Ingeborg would still have got the role.” Please read on to hear more about this talented actress/singer and her answers to our questions about the role and working with Alexander. Many thanks for joining our “Fiddler’s Bunch”

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.
Alexander’s Musical “Trolle and the Magic Fiddle” opened on November 28 and ran until December 28 , 2019 at the Kilden Theatre and Cultural Hall in Kristiansand, Norway.
The show drew ticket sales from far and wide attracting an international audience to the theatre. Around 10,000 tickets were sold to at least 16 different countries, including Norway, Germany, the UK, Poland, USA, Ireland, Russia, Greece, Croatia, Slovakia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Hungary and Norfolk Island!
“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”😎 I hope you’re having a wonderful December ❤️ #trolle “
