Press coverage

Lillian Bikset, Som folket synger (literally: As the people sing), Dagbladet February 8 2014:

"When Lisa Kent in 2008 mounted Les Misérables for The National Stage in Bergen, she cultivated the differences between Jean Valjean and Javert, between mercy and brutality, reconciliation and revenge. When the same director, in collaboration with the same stage designer and the same Jean Valjean, interpret the musical anew, the question is how deep human goodness goes. (…) The choreography is less of a priority, but the quality of the singing is unusually high. In addition to the warring Jean Valjean (Sigurd Sele, who also interpreted the same role in Bergen in 2008) and Javert (Nils Christian Fossdal, less determined than we are used to see Javert), the suffering Fantine (Britt-Synnøve Johansen) and the hopeful Eponine (Marieke B. Wang) deserve to be mentioned especially. The latter is also the one of all the involved in the production who best manages to show human development in her interpretation of the role."
