About Hovedscenen

The main stage at Det Nye Teater in Rosenkrantzgate 10 in Kristiania (Oslo), Norway.

In 1924 Det Nye Teater bought land in the street of Rosenkrantzgate, no. 10, to build a theatre venue. Architects Gudolf Blakstad and Jens Dunker designed it, and the cornerstone was laid down in 1927. The theatre opened February 26 1929, when At the Gate of the Kingdom, the first part of a trilogy by Knut Hamsun, was performed. The next two evenings Hamsun's The Game of Life and Sunset Glow followed.
