Bluebeard’s Castle
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Bluebeard’s Castle

Mahler Adagio from Symphony No.10
Bartók Bluebeard’s Castle

Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Jennifer Johnston Judith
Károly Szemerédy Bluebeard

“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. Liverpool’s own Jennifer Johnston 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.

Concert performance, sung in Hungarian with English surtitles.
