Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi

At more than eighty years of age, Verdi had sworn that he would never be asked to do it again, but he greedily dives back into the composition of a final opera buffa with the most youthful spirit.

The hilarious misadventures of the old knight Sir John Falstaff, erotomaniac, windbag and boastful, wishing to seduce two rich Windsor damsels, will serve as a framework for an exemplary libretto, both concise and sparkling, by Arrigo Boito, after Shakespeare. Verdi only had to graft a music with dazzling verve, handling with naturalness both the quasi-spoken song and the lyrical flights of fancy on a most voluble orchestral accompaniment. The pathos of these ten characters with strong characters rubs shoulders with our liberating laughter, until the masterly final fugue (in C major!) on the words “everything in the world is a farce”, symbol of this strikingly tonic masterpiece. Let’s hold our breath, the duo Michael Schønwandt and David Hermann is at work, it promises us exciting moments of musical theater.

Béjart Ballet Lausanne “Ballet for Life”

AVAILABLE FOR COPRODUCTION OR PREBUY

Using Mozart’s arias and Queen’s greatest hits, Maurice Béjart wanted to create an incredible culture shock: the question of desire and love in the age of AIDS, the shadow of death at the height of a vital act…

From the opening, the emotion and nostalgia are there, the dancers lying in their white shroud come to life on the song “This Is A Beautiful Day”, and carry us away to the sound of Freddie Mercury’s unique voice, to which they really give life. The 37 dancers who share the stage, dressed in Gianni Versace’s costumes, give us a wild performance of Béjart’s choreography.

Genre: Choreography

The Baltic Sea Philharmonic conducted by Kristjan Järvi plays ‘Midnight Sun’

Under the baton of Founding Conductor and Music Director Kristjan Järvi, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic played the entire 100-minute ‘Midnight Sun’ programme of music by Grieg and Stravinsky from memory. Budapest-born pianist József Balog joined the orchestra as soloist in Grieg’s Piano Concerto. The concert also includes another of Grieg’s most celebrated works – the Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 – and Stravinsky’s 1945 orchestral version of The Firebird, a piece which the Baltic Sea Philharmonic became the first orchestra in the world to perform completely from memory.

Can be paired with the documentary Nordic Pulse which follows Kristjan Järvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic on three European tours as they fulfill their destiny to become the first orchestra in history to perform Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite by memory and push the boundaries of what it means to be an orchestra.
