Nobel Peace Prize 2003

Star-studded line-up for Nobel Concert

The annual concert held in connection with the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo will once again feature some big names in music and the arts. The Norwegians are perhaps most excited about the appearance of a home-grown star.


Lene Marlin, the singer who recently re-emerged with a new hit single, has finally agreed to perform at the concert, which will be held in the Oslo Spektrum arena December 11. Prize-winner Shirin Ebadi of Iran will be the guest of honor.

"We've tried to get her for three years," a clearly pleased concert organizer Odd Arvid Stroemstad told newspaper Aftenposten. "This time she said yes."

Marlin isn't the only Nordic headliner who's signed up to perform. The Cardigans of Sweden are also on the bill, which as usual will offer a wide range of entertainment.

Opera stars Roberto Alagna and Angela Gheorghiu head the classical offering. "They're not just two strong artists," claimed Stroemstad, "they're two very strong personalities."

Country music will also be represented, with Tim McGraw of the US set to travel to Oslo. Stroemstad told Aftenposten that McGraw also is considering taking along his wife, fellow country music star Faith Hill.

The Chieftains of Ireland have also agreed to perform at the Nobel Concert, with Roseanne Cash, daughter of the late Johnny Cash.

Stroemstad said Orchestra Baobab of Senegal is also on the line-up for the concert, which will be hosted by celebrity couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It will be broadcast to 100 countries with an audience reach of 500 million households.


Actors Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones will host the Nobel Concert this year.

The Prize Award Ceremonies and Banquets on December 10

Since 1901, the Nobel Prizes have been presented to the Laureates at ceremonies on December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death. As stipulated in the will of the Swedish-born inventor and international industrialist Alfred Nobel, which was opened after his death in 1896 ... the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway.

In Oslo, the ceremony was for many years held at the Nobel Institute. From 1947 till 1990, the setting was the auditorium of the University of Oslo. In 1990 the event moved to the Oslo City Hall.

... In Oslo the Nobel Peace Prize is presented by the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee in the presence of Their Majesties the King and Queen of Norway, the Government, Storting representatives and an invited audience. Several hundred seats are reserved for persons with special reasons for wishing to attend the ceremony. Later the same day, the Norwegian Nobel Committee hosts a banquet in honour of the Laureate, with specially invited guests.

Since the Nobel Prize is regarded by far as the most prestigious prize in the world, the Award Ceremonies as well as the Banquets ... Oslo on December 10 have been transformed from local ... Norwegian arrangements into major international events that receive worldwide coverage by the print media, radio and television.

Mette-Marit looks very discreet in the dark ensemble she is wearing. And the big hat covers nearly all of her face. Quite different from her light blue suits from the previous years.


It's the first year, since he became king, that King Harald's not at the ceremony.

Queen Sonja looks very depressed, though. (I'm not sure I blame her.)

See the Nobel ceremony in Oslo live,

Nobel Ceremony in Oslo
Thank you for poeting the URL very much, Josefine. :flower:

I saw the Nobel ceremony in Oslo live for the first time. I am very glad to see the royal family of Norway with a live broadcast, especially Mette-Marit. But I disappointed that she wears a big hat and dark colour's clothes. I would like to see her who wears colorful dress without a big hat.

It's the big hat that's the most irritating. But maybe there's a good reason why she's wearing it. She's in one of the last months of her pregnancy.

Queen Sonja wears a small hat, and I think they should've switched.

Queen Sonja has aged quite a lot in the past two weeks.

No, she wasn't there.

She will attend the concert tomorrow, with her husband, her brother and her sister-in-law.

Or so the programme from the Palace informed me.

Mette-Marit's hat is so big it covers half her face!

... Maybe she was planning on holding the hat strategically in front of her growing belly, and not to cover her face with!

Was King Harald's lack of presence mentioned?

The Norwegian commentator mentioned that this was the first time that King Harald hasn't attended, since he became King. He also mentioned the illness. I don't know what the other commentators did.

It wasn't mentioned, that I heard, directly in the award-ceremony.

Thank you norwegianne for the information. I was just curious to know if King Harald would be acknowledged, not to mean that the entire ceremony should be somber or downcast as a result of the constant reminder that the King has cancer. But I think it was an important and nice gesture that the King's non-presence at the award was mentioned and acknowledged.

Nobel winner blasts rights abuses


Ebadi had a tough message for the West
Iranian Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi has criticised states for infringing human rights "under the cloak of the war on terrorism".

In a speech after accepting her award, Ms Ebadi, 56, said the events of 11 September 2001 in the United States had been misused for this end.

She also said the fact she had won the prize would inspire masses of women striving to achieve their rights.

The Iranian lawyer was the first Muslim woman to be awarded the peace prize.
