The show must go on at the Chat Noir
The Chat Noir is like a venerable old showgirl that still has what it takes to raise the roof. Established back in 1912 by the famous Norwegian leading lady Bokken Lasson, the Chat Noir has gone through its fair share of the 20th century’s trials and tribulations – but the show must go on!
The 1920s were perhaps the theatre’s heyday. Led by Victor Bernau between 1920 and 1928, the theatre became renowned as a modern revue theatre. Unfortunately, with the occupation of Norway by the Nazis during World War II, the Chat Noir fell on hard times. The music still played, but the material was censored. Post war, this spirited institution went from strength to strength, putting on revues, musicals and theatre and entertaining the people of Oslo.
