Opera Design - Laila Thortveit was created in Norway in November 2020 during the Covid-19 crisis. The society organizes performances, concerts and recitals of classical music.


In 2021, Opera Design was programming thirty performances such as “Haugtussa – Esmeralda”, “On the Sun I Look – Munch in Art, Music and Thought” and “Alcina and me”, as well as different classical concerts. Supported by the Norwegian Government on behalf of the Norwegian Arts Council - Kulturrådet.

The objective of Opera Design is to program musical productions by highlighting the links between different artistic forms such as music, literature, painting, architecture or even history and stories.


Laila Thortveit trained as a singer with Karen Nimereala Acampora in France and Loretta Corelli in Italy.


She participated in several productions in roles such as Gilda in Rigoletto, Arsena in the Gypsy Baron and The Swedish Baronesse in Parisian Life. She has often been chosen as a soloist for oratorios, such as Haendel's Messiah and Bach's oratorio.

Since 2022, Laila Thortveit is the President of Edvard Grieg Society in France.
