London Symphony Orchestra: Bluebeard's Castle
About London Symphony Orchestra: Bluebeard's Castle
The London Symphony Orchestra under music director Simon Rattle performs a spine-tingling all-Bartók program. The Concerto for Orchestra, a tour de force of modern music, highlights the entire virtuosic ensemble. Hungarian bass-baritone Gábor Bretz and Israeli mezzo-soprano Rinat Shaham depict the legendary Bluebeard and his wife, Judith, in a transfixing one-act opera-in-concert, exposing terrifying secrets and the sheer power of the human voice.
