In 2007 Per Christian Revholt and Ket Iren Lødemel shared The Hedda Award in the special artistic achievement category for the music for The Threepenny Opera, produced by The Norwegian Touring Theatre and Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre) in collaboration.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"Some productions not only demand exciting direction, competent actors, innovative stage designers, precise lighting designers and able technicians. An entirely different and very independent group of artists has, in certain cases, definitive significance for the result. This year's winners have several times earlier delighted their audience with unique musicality. This year they again proved that they are confident in style, risk-taking musicians. With an ear for all the nuances of the text, and loyalty towards the playwright and composer this year's winners made The Threepenny Opera an unequivocal musical experience in the best tradition of Brecht.

Per Christian Revholt and Ket Iren Lødemel get the award for musical arrangements and performance of Kurt Weill's music in the production made in collaboration between The Norwegian Touring Theatre and Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre)."

Together, Erik Hedin, Reinhard Traub and Per Christian Revholt were nominated for The Hedda Award 2015 in the best audiovisual design category for their work in A Dream Play by August Strindberg, directed by Calixto Bieito, The National Theatre.

A complete list of his assignments at The National Theatre can be found in the theatre's database.
