Bela Bartók’s only opera, Bluebeard’s Castle, is used as a vehicle for exploring the issue of divine and human passion. Paralleling Bluebeard’s journey with the Via Crucis -Christ’s path to Golgotha- the pianist Giorgos Konstantinou reworks pieces by Bartók and Liszt for an unusual combination of instruments: piano, musical saw and hammer. The saw gives voice to the cries of Bluebeard’s wives as well as the lament for the Passion of Jesus.
