Orchestra of Opera North: Janácek & Bartók

Orchestra of Opera North: Janácek & Bartók


Opera North’s concert staging of Bartòk’s one-act opera _Bluebeard's Castle_ features the great British bass-baritone Christopher Purves in the title role, with award-winning Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill as Bluebeard’s wife Judith.

Inspired by military brass bands and bookended by rousing fanfares, Janáček’s Sinfonietta opens the evening with rustic, joyful melodies.  Former Music Director of English National Opera Sian Edwards returns to Opera North to conduct, following her triumphant company debut with the Czech composer's _Katya Kabanova_ earlier this year.

Free pre-concert talk at 6.45pm by Peter Whitfield.
