At the theatre “Oslo Nye” plays the musical “Fiddler on the Roof” for full houses. It has done so for a long time now and will continue up until mid-June. It was about time to have a chat with the stars who held the lead roles.
We sat down in the middle of the stage at the strange, empty auditorium. What does the success feel like, and how is it to stand on this stage everyday in front of a new expecting audience? Dennis Storhøi plays the lead role of Tevye and Alexander Rybak plays the fiddler on the roof. Continue reading Interview with Alexander and Dennis Storhøi in “In-Magasinet” 2007

Alexander Rybak and Dennis Storhøi have had a huge success earlier with “Fiddler on the Roof”. “Her og Nå” can now reveal that they once again will turn their musical talents together.

Alexander Rybak (25) and Dennis Storhøi (51) have developed a close relationship through the staging of the audience and critics success “Fiddler on the Roof”. Young Alexander considers the theatre veteran Dennis as his artistic mentor, and the two have kept in touch since “Fiddler on the Roof”, the play for which Alexander was honoured with the “Hedda” award (best newcomer of the year). The two popular artists will now again be on the same stage during the concert tour “Vinterbilder” (=Winter pictures)

A little secretive Dennis Storhøi confirms to “Her og Nå” that he now will perform with Alexander again.
– I’m of course looking forward to working with Alexander again. We have kept in touch, and there’s a good atmosphere between us, he says.

From what “Her og Nå” has learnt, it will be 15 concerts in December. The established pianist Øystein Lund Olafsen is the producer, and Alexander and Dennis will be joined by the singer Anne Vada.
