Konsertti-ilta ihmismielen pimeän puolen kaikukammioissa. Herttua Siniparran synkeän linnan kiellettyjä ovia availee Wienin valtionoopperan...
Spend an evening in the echo chambers on the dark side of the human mind. In the King Lear Overture of Hector Berlioz, a composer who worshipped Shakespeare, the orchestra’s violas, cellos and basses come together and recite the thoughts of the mad old king. The forbidden doors of Duke Bluebeard’s gloomy castle are opened in the concert version of Bartók’s opera by mezzo-soprano Szilvia Vörös from the Vienna State Opera, who is joined by bass Mika Kares, who has performed leading roles in opera houses around the world.
