The week-long strike by singers and dancers at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo is over after both parties reached an agreement late last night.

Musicians Union MFO (Musikernes fellesorganisasjon) say all performances will be resumed as soon as possible.

The deal means orchestral musicians will now get 33,000 kroner extra in keeping with what colleagues in Bergen, Stavanger, and Trondheim were given last year, and singers and dancers will receive up to 26,000 kroner extra.

“We succeeded in getting agreement on our principle argument, not least because our members implemented Norway’s most cheerful strike,” says MFO chairperson Renée Rasmussen.
