Sacred Music Days

Starts at: 20.30 | clock

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.

Pilot season ticket prices: € 12, 15 / Student, reduced: € 8

The GNO’s Alternative Stage opens its introductory season at the SNFCC with a series of events dedicated to one of the most important subjects in the history of music: worship. The festival will be presented annually every Easter period. The first cycle is about "Human and Holy Passion".
