In the documentary film Taking Risks, here shown for the very first time, we follow a number of talented, young European singers on their way to the stage at the Gothenburg Concert Hall via auditions in Stockholm, Zürich, Paris and London.

In Gothenburg, they perform Stravinsky’s opera The Rake’s Progress with renowned soprano Barbara Hannigan conducting Gothenburg Symphony. The initiative is part of her mentorship programme Equilibrium, which helps singers at the beginning of their careers to develop their art. Not  least by daring to take risks.

The film is in English, it is free entry for you who have a festival pass or a ticket to any of the festival performances. First come first seated… Here is a short sneak peek from the documentary:
