Join us at The Music Factory – a concert for all ages featuring dance, animation and orchestra music bursting with colour!

We’ll be exploring and having fun with musical favourites combined with animation, dance and digital staging, complete with all our musicians on stage. At the Music Factory, you’ll meet a whole range of weird and wonderful characters, both live and on the gigantic screen behind the orchestra. We’ll all be building and exploring musical instruments – as well as music itself!

“The Oslo Philharmonic’s new family production, The Music Factory, is an impressively thorough, vibrant event for all ages”, commented a critic on after the premiere in 2017.

The Music Factory is a concept developed by Sigurd Slåttebrekk and Cina Espejord. Sigurd is one of the creators of Elias The Little Rescue Boat, and he is also an award-winning pianist who is passionate about bringing the arts to children and young people. Director Cina is a dancer and choreographer, who has garnered international praise for her choreography for the Norwegian National Ballet’s production, Ghosts.

From age 4 and above.

The Music Factory is produced by Animando and animated by Expanse, based on a concept by Sigurd Slåttebrekk.

This production is made possible with support from Sparebankstiftelsen, Bergenesstiftelsen, and the Arts Council.
