Judith / The Prodigal Son / The Rite of Spring

Saturday Nov 20 18:00 …       Al. Zwycięstwa 15, Gdańsk
We all know that opera is, first and foremost, a spiritual experience. For this reason, the 70th anniversary of the Baltic Opera's existence will be focused on giving local audiences the opportunity to experience the aesthetics, themes and diversity of artistic skills that make the magic happen! This special 3-feature is a spiritual journey through a selection of prototypical ideas - the Old Testament story of Judith, the pagan Rite of Spring, and the parable of the prodigal son, each serving as the inspiration behind the music of Arthur Honegger, Igor Stravinsky and Claude Debussy respectively. Each story also emphasizes numerous emotional and cultural ambiguities that are roused within each story. Above all, however, these three works are united by love - maternal, heroic, submissive, heroic, pure, subconscious - and, although seemingly separate, can be united in the language of dance and operatic theatre. As works from some of the greatest composers of the 20th century, the Baltic Opera has, once again, masterfully interpreted them in a way that corresponds to our current reality, further proving that this medium of performance is still relevant in the 21st century.
