Bluebeard’s Castle

Mahler Adagio from Symphony No.10 (23')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Bartók Bluebeard’s Castle (59')

Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Adrienn Miksch Judith
Károly Szemerédy Bluebeard

It is with regret that we announce that Jennifer Johnston has had to withdraw from this concert. The role of Judith will now be sung by Adrienn Miksch.“Darkness rules within your castle…can it be the stone is weeping?” Duke Bluebeard’s castle has seven doors, and his new wife Judith is determined to unlock them all. But some questions are best left unasked. Bartók’s opera is one of the all-time great psychological thrillers: eerie, atmospheric and blazing with colours like you’ve never imagined. Adrienn Miksch is the fearless heroine, as Domingo Hindoyan lowers the drawbridge. First, though, Mahler: the only possible way to launch an evening of dark emotions and truly wondrous sounds.
