A firework display

There was a firework display of a concert in Kragerø church last night. Kragerø choir had shot the golden bird by getting Alexander Rybak and Didrik Solli-Tangen with them.

It was a concert the many in attendance will remember for a long, a very long time. A concert with many highlights, that was rewarded with a deserved standing ovation when the concert came to its end.

You must just take your hat off to the Kragerø choir with its 16 young girls. The conductor Robert Carding does a great job with the choir, which Rybak emphasized at the end of the concert.

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.

Fan report about her trip to Norway by Emily Boycott July 6th – 8th 2012

Report by a British Facebookie about her journey to Norway for the Tønsberg Summer show with Alexander Rybak , July 7th 2012

Text and photos: Emily Boycott 

Thursday 5th July

Mum and dad drove me to Birmingham late at night, I was so excited, I actually exploded (At least, that’s what dad blamed the nosebleed on!) Lillian picked me up from there, and I said goodbye to my parents before we embarked on an all night long trip to John Lennon airport where to my amusement there was actually a yellow Submarine… We had a cup of tea and a doze before meeting Anni and Dave at about 5am. Currently lacking sleep and over excited – funny combination!

 

I can see Norway!!!

 Friday 6th July

We got to Torp at about half Nine, I decided that Norway looks like someone put a country in a blender with all the islands and what not, but so pretty and awesome!  After a short train vs. taxi dispute, we chose the latter.
