Controversial, expressive, inventive and fun! In this performance of Arnold Schönberg’s melodrama Pierrot Lunaire, Patricia Kopatchinskaja gives a brilliant performance as the reciter, playing moonstruck clown Pierrot.
The poems, by Albert Giraud, are performed with neverending energy, imagination and humour. In addition to Schönberg, we’ll also hear works by Bartók, Milhaud, J Strauss II and Sciarrino. Musicians from Gothenburg Symphony will provide the music.
The performance is a part of Point Music Festival
Throughout Point Music Festival 23-26 May, the Gothenburg Concert Hall will be transformed. With sound, lighting and design, we’ll create an atmosphere where anything can happen. An atmosphere where music, dance, performing art and other art forms meet in new, unexpected ways, sweeping the audience into an adventure. Which festival pass do you choose?
Point Music Festival is conducted with the support of the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture.
