Trolle and Alva visited NRK’s local radio station in Kristiansand today and talked about the musical “Trolle”. It is only two days to the premiere and for Alexander it is a bit scary and at the same time really looking forward to the day his most cherished project has its premiere. We wish him and his crew all the luck.
At the end of the interview Ingeborg and Alexander sings the song “Baby it’s Cold Outside”

A short glimpse from the concert, posted on FB by the Culture School.
At the annual Culture School Concert on Friday, Alexander Rybak himself showed up with his violin. According to the Culture School, it was Rybak himself who took the initiative to play together with the students at Knuden (The Knot), the culture school in Kristiansand.
When Alexander Rybak toured with “Fairytale”, he began writing the story about Trolle. Ten years later he is ready to create magic on the musical stage. When Kilden opens its doors to the premier in November, it will be a sensual and visual party with spectacular costumes and big scenography.
Melody Grand Prix and “Fairytale” were fun. But at the same time, I was working on something else, something completely different, something that could be about us all. About bullying, about not fitting in. About magical places and mysterious creatures that one can choose to believe in or not. But most of all about friendship.
