The Norwegian season for outdoor theater is starting this weekend. I went to a rehearsal a couple of days ago, and I was quite impressed be the horses participating. There are about 20 of them in the play (and 100 people), of different Nordic horse breeds. Above three Icelandic horses.
The play, Karolinerspelet, is staged every second year in a small village in Tydal. About 3000 Swedish soldiers died of cold and hunger in a winter storm in the mountains between Norway and Sweden in the New Year of 1719. They were retreating after the death of king, Charles XII of Sweden. The play about the Carolean Death March is performed in exactly the same place were the army started the march into tragedy 295 years ago.
I made a post the last time this play was performed, in January 2012. That time it was snowing a lot, which can be a challenge for a photographer, but the snow created the right mood for the play, as you can see on this link. This winter is totally different, no snow storms, but I am quite sure it will make a strong impression. There are more pictures from the play this year in my photo gallery.
