First BUS to Oslo. Thon Hotel Terminus in Oslo Centrum. Then train to OSL Airport. SAS SK484 Monday 16th, 2022, at 1105 to Arlanda. Should have been a shorter stop, but then security stopped operations in th airport so it was 4 hrs wait in stead. So I landed in Barcelona 2000. Taxi to the hotel Glories at 2100. 

Tuesday 17th, 2022: National Day of Norway and enjoying Barcelona.

Finally, concert day, Wednesday May 18th, 2022: 
Montserrat Caballé Claus, niese of the Great DIVA, organized the concert and was conferancier. Montserrat Martí Caballé, daughter of Montserrat Caballé (La SUBERBA) and Bernabé Martí. Sadly recently Bernabé Martí also departed from our world. A wonderful tenor, husband and father.

After the concert we were able to mingle among the stars and then back to the hotel.

Corona 2020-2022 and Operaduets Travel 2020-2022

Last performance I saw live in 2020 was Les Huguenots by Meyerbeer in Deutsche Oper Berlin 2020-03-09. After Berlin I had planned a travel to see Lucrezia Borgia in Auditori Tenerife, March 19th, and in Sevilla El Barberillo de Lavapies, but then Corona closed our borders.
Then finally came 2022 and I felt I could travel again.
