Le Grand Macabre
“An exhilarating success, offering an eager and excellent cast, a brilliant and assured performance of Ligeti’s daunting score and a disarming production, designed and directed by Doug Fitch, that makes ingenious use of playful video images. The audience, with noticeable contingents of young people, laughed right through and seemed enthralled.”
Having earned raves – including that of The New York Times above – this production of Ligeti’s only opera, adapted for the Elbphilharmonie, will appear via the Internationale Musikfest Hamburg.
