Eivind Gullberg Jensen Appointed Artistic & General Director of Bergen National Opera



Eivind Gullberg Jensen is a bullseye for BNO. He is a sought-after conductor internationally, equally familiar with both the modern and classical repertoire. Throughout his career, he has taken regular assignments at leading opera companies worldwide. In addition to this solid artistic foundation, he will, as a resident of Bergen, be able to build on the strong position that BNO has won both nationally and internationally.”

It is a great pleasure for me to announce that from 2021 I will be able to contribute to the opera scene in my home town of Bergen. Opera is in many ways the ultimate art form, where music, theater, dance and visual art culminates in something even greater. I look forward to continuing the great work that has been laid down by BNO & Mary Miller in recent years. In addition to leading BNO artistically, one of my most important tasks will be to participate in the process of convincing politicians, nationally and regionally, to support the building of a new opera house in Western Norway. This is an assignment, that with the greatest pleasure, I will take on immediately.”
