Built in 1914 as the town’s cultural venue and theatre. Kristiansund Opera holds workshops and has its offices in the building. Every february, the 2 weeks of opera festive weeks is being arranged (full scale operas, musicals i.e.).
The town opera of Kristiansund is a glimpse of the «klipfish-era», upon which the town made its wealth and position as an exporter of prima quality klipfish. The opera is being performed outdoors, every year in the month of August. Beautiful location by the sea, in a fisherman environment.
