Welcome to Elden
Elden is a Norwegian historical musical written by Arnfinn Strømmevold and Bertil Reithaug. The musical is set in the spectacular surroundings of the Røros World Heritage Site. The slag heaps form a majestic setting for the drama that unfolds in the evening hours at the turn of the month of July/August. Elden takes us back to 1718–1719 when 10,000 Swedish soldiers, commanded by General Carl Gustaf Armfeldt, headed towards Trondheim to take Norway, on the orders of Charles XII.
