Love is the Perfect Sum of all Delight
Two singers meet and separate following the path of Romeo and Juliet through the first half of the concert. Performed to music by Brahms, Händel, Schumann, Grieg, Monteverdi and Hagemann.
The second half explores “The Joys and Pains of Love” as a theatrical performance, again with props and costumes. Enjoy the Bacarole by Offenbach and Carmen’s temperamental way to see love , Dalila’s pleading for love and Britten’s still actual questions in Tell me the truth about Love.
