The Musician’s Union (MFO) has stepped up their walkout at the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo.

On Tuesday, the union called out 11 dancers, and has now widened the protest over pay to include six more.

A total of 17 dancers and 7 singers are now on strike, and MFO has warned it plans to escalate industrial action on Monday if no agreement is reached.

Colleagues in NRK’s orchestra, as well as Trondheim Symphony and Oslo Philharmonic Orchestras have sent statements of support.

A musical demonstration by the Norwegian Blåseensmble is planned for tomorrow at 18:00 in front of the opera house.
