The last years, Karoline has enjoyed great success on

the theatrical stage: a major role in the critically

acclaimed modern cabaret version of Ibsens "Peer Gynt"

has taken her amongst others to Barcelona, Lisboa,

Hamburg and New York. In 2020 she played the

demanding and iconic role of "Florence" in the

musical CHESS at Folketeateret, and the autumn

of 2021 she portrayed "Donna" in the world hit musical

MAMMA MIA! To a massive response;  Norwegian

Broadcasting (NRK) stated in their review that "Karoline

Krüger is worth the ticket alone."

.  

Both as a composer and as concert

performer Karoline leans on her

comprehensive work from the theatre

field: Whether the form it takesis

simple and bequiling or dramatically 

melodious, it is always interwoven

with the narrative.

 

 

Karoline Krüger is to be found in the "Land-of-in-between". She has,

first and foremost, since her debut over three decades ago, firmly established herself in the flora of Norwegian performing artists, as

an exciting and gifted performer and composer. One of her

hallmarks has always been her willingness to seek out new

forms of expression - the theatre being one of them. "The

difference between theperforming artist and the actor", she

says, "was already clearly visible to me in the days of 

schoolplay performances. Those who dreamed of becoming

actors wanted to play the part of the Witch: we budding

performers were onlyinterested in playing Snow White...!"

 

In the course of two decades Karoline Krüger

has released six solo albums and has been

featured on numerous others. Her debut

album, "Fasetter" (Facets) was released in

1988.

 

The same year she enjoyed a

huge hit in parts of Europe  & Asia

with the ballad "You call it love".

 

However, it was with the album "Fuglehjerte"

(The Heart of a Bird) that she really blossomed

as lyricist andcomposer. The triology of the

 "Jacob's Mass", forwhich she wrote the music,

have since the first performance in Oslo in 2000,

been performed and broadcasted in several

Scandinavian countries.
