At the website of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Barco:

"With his Northern Norwegian salty observation abilities mixed with French elegance, Eirik del Barco Soleglad brings the audience along on a madcap journey through the history of the world and of Norway, while he tells stories from his own life, about the joys and perils of religion and about sports as a phenomenon.

It is about Sortland, puberty, singing voice, the boat called Hurtigruten, bags of peas and otherwise about anything between heaven and earth, from the time of creation until today. He has written the show for himself and it is directed by well-known Bård Ylvisåker."
