What are the driving forces that make an artist want to expose himself completely and stand alone on stage, without any grand set design or accompanying musicians to back him up? Is it a fascination with the unexplored, extreme exhibitionism or even self-torture? No one knows for sure. But one thing is certain, it's exactly what one of the biggest pop phenomena of our time, Orup, intends to do. That is, throw themselves into the unknown towards an outcome that will either be a success or an insignificant fart in space. So expect an intimate, personal and stripped-down performance with just Orup - his guitars, grand piano and songwriting, plus the occasional anecdote. Tickets
Welcome to Orup Bara. That's right.
Join us for the premiere meeting
What a premiere!
January 18, 2024
After a long wait, it was finally time for the premiere of Orup Bara at Rival. And what a night it was!
Not since 2016 has Orup stood on stage all alone, without comp, band or dancers. But he wasn't completely alone. A sold-out theatre, packed with a fantastic audience, welcomed him with open arms and incredible energy. Orup offered a hit cavalcade of rank and we couldn't have asked for a better opening night.
Stockholm and Mariatorget were at their wintry best, with sparkling snow and snow-covered streets. And inside Rival, warmth and joy spread from both the stage and the audience. Orup Bara is here to stay. Well, the whole spring actually. Welcome to Rival too. There was something really good about the city tonight. ticket
