Join Scandinavia House for a musical program featuring the poetry of Norwegian poet Olav H. Hauge! “RIT” is performed by Norwegian artists Reidun Horvei (voice) and Inger-Kristine Riber (keyboard and composition). The poems in this song cycle follow the seasons of the year while they mark developments in Hauge’s poetry and in his personal life.
Olav H. Hauge enjoyed both critical and popular success during his lifetime (1908-1994) and since his death his stature has only grown. Hauge’s iconic poem “Det er den draumen” (“This is the Dream”) was recently designated as Norway’s national poem.
An introduction to the program and the poet, Olav H. Hauge, will be given by Katherine Hanson.Buy tickets/get more info now
