Kilden Performing Arts Centre in Kristiansand is the fantastic new theatre long awaited by the people of Kristiansand. It will really help put Kristiansand on the European map for arts and entertainment.
It is the biggest arts centre between Oslo and Stavanger and is expected to officially open its doors in January 2012.
When you think of the Opera House in Sydney - its style comes to mind. Unforgettable. It is a bit like the Kilden theatre in Kristiansand. The difference is, it has been with a Norwegian touch - Norwegian wood! (Not entirely of course)
Kilden has enough room for audiences of up to 2270. The Concert Hall is the biggest with its 1185 seats. The Theatre and Opera Hall holds 700 seats, and the Multi Hall and the Intimscenen holds 235 and 150 seats respectively.
The great thing about the Kilden theatre, is its location. Situated next to Kristiansand Fiskebrygga - what a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon. A few fish cakes at the fish market and then some entertainment at Kilden.
Here are videos of how to get to Kilden from the fiskebrygga and by car.
