Wagner Dream
Millennium Centre, Cardiff
Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales

WNO

Wagner is dying in Venice. He will leave behind some of Western art’s greatest works. But he hasn’t finished his life’s work; he is tormented by his need to write a music drama about the Buddha.

Welsh National Opera is proud to present the UK staged première of the late Jonathan Harvey’s extraordinary opera. Wagner Dream is part biography, part fantasy that will transport you into another realm.

Supported by members of the Getty Family as part of British Firsts and by a lead gift from The Kobler Trust.

Original production: commission and co-production: De Nederlandse Opera, Amsterdam, Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg, Holland Festival and IRCAM -Centre Pompidou, Paris


Also 7th June and 12th June Birmingham Hippodrome.

Death in Venice
English National Opera
London Coliseum

ENO

Two unspoken themes run throughout Britten’s much-admired opera: the impossible passion that a troubled writer forms for a fellow hotel guest, and the cholera epidemic which the authorities are all too keen to hush up. In Death in Venice, Britten revisits the subject of corruption of youth and innocence that so fascinated him and delivers a haunting theatrical experience of consummate power.

Deborah Warner’s production of Britten’s final opera celebrates the composer’s centenary year and reaffirms ENO’s position as the world’s leading producer of his operas. This production reunites award-winning director Warner with ENO Music Director Edward Gardner, who returns to Britten following ENO’s productions of Billy Budd (2012) and Peter Grimes (2009), for which his conducting was described as ‘deeply musical’ (Financial Times).

Warner’s relationship with ENO continues to flourish having directed Diary of One Who Vanished, St John Passion, Messiah and most recently Eugene Onegin, ENO’s sumptuous, elegant and epic co-production with the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

BBC Singers
Raschèr Saxophone Quartet
James Morgan conductor

As unusual a musical collaboration as you're likely to hear, this concert brings together the expert choral forces of the BBC Singers with the instrumental ones of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet. Founded in 1969 by one of the modern pioneers of the instrument, Sigurd Raschèr, the quartet are renowned for their virtuosity - and a German critic has written "If there were an Olympic discipline for wind playing, the Raschèr Quartet would definitely receive a gold medal."

In tonight's wide-ranging programme they give, with the BBC Singers, the British premieres of three of the many pieces they have commissioned from living composers. The Estonian Erkki-Sven Tüür sets a Latin prayer by St Anselm of Canterbury, Giya Kancheli has based his piece on a variety of sacred texts from his native Georgia, while Belfast composer Ian Wilson sets words by the Austrian Expressionist poet and artist Oscar Kokoschka.

Alongside these pieces, the BBC Singers perform two fascinating works for unaccompanied voices by Per Norgard and Knut Nystedt, while the Raschèr Quartet demonstrate that four saxophones are just as well suited to the music of the Baroque as to contemporary scores.


Erkki-Sven Tüür : Meditatio
Per Nørgård : Wie ein Kind
Henry Purcell : Fantasia no 7, Z.738
Ian Wilson : Little Red Fish
Knut Nystedt : Immortal Bach

The Gloaming

In a much anticipated UK premiere, The Gloaming collective carves new paths connecting the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary music scene. From haunting sean-nós songs to raucous folk explosions, they make music that is both ancient and utterly new.

The super-group came together at Grouse Lodge Studios in West Meath in early 2011 and features New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh and Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionaird – well known for his contribution to the legendary Afro Celt Sound System and arguably the finest singer of his generation.

'Neither slavishly traditional nor willfully contemporary, it sought out uncharted terrain (some of which was undoubtedly familiar) – and, most impressively, welcomed their audience as essential passengers on that journey' Irish Times

Kronos Quartet

Two legendary forces in new music come together on stage in a major new commission and their first-ever collaboration.

Landfall: Scenes From My New Novel is a collection of works composed on hyper violin and adapted to the string quartet. Like a series of short stories, the pieces are linked by passages inspired by weather - roaring, all enveloping and atmospheric.

For this piece Laurie Anderson has designed software that brings the harmonics and overtones up off the noises floor creating an instrument that breathes in a completely new way. Kronos Quartet has adapted and built on this musical language so that electronics and traditional strings sing together.

'Quiet, poignant and very human' Washington Post

The start time of this concert has changed to 8pm. The performance will last approximately 70 minutes without interval.
