The Play about Saint Olav

Don't miss the performance "The Play about Saint Olav" at Stiklestad. Here you encounter both the close and the great stories - societal change, religious change, and change in mentality. Everyday life on the farm is challenged by politics, and the most vulnerable individual meets the king. After Olav has ridden into the farmyard, life will never be the same...

The lectures take place on July 25, 27, 28, and 29, 2024. Tickets can be purchased on Stiklestad National Cultural Center's website.
