Scenes from the End

Héloüse Werner, soprano
Emily Burns, director

Jonathan Woolgar: Scenes from the End

Edinburgh Fringe

Scenes from the End is a new, daring, solo show that embraces the emotional power of opera to explore the overwhelming themes of death and grief.

In three parts, Scenes from the End begins with the end of the universe, moves through the end of humanity, before finally addressing the end of the individual. What is grief? How does society perceive death and grief, and how does this affect your own experience of grief? At times reserved and reflective, at times unashamedly direct, Scenes from the End will leave the audience challenged and shaken, forced to consider and reflect upon their own attitudes towards death and grief.

Festival Maribor 2016

The distinguished international festival from Slovenia dedicated to classical music, Festival Maribor will conclude this year's summer season inspired by childhood. Pieces characterized by the playfulness, inventiveness, boldness or imaginary worlds of children will be played by outstanding Slovenian and foreign musicians. The charismatic cellist Nicolas Altstaedt will perform alone as well as with breakthrough British chamber orchestra Arcangelo under the direction of Jonathan Cohen. We'll have a great time with Englishmen The Classic Buskers who will prepare a musical magic show based on Mozart's Magic Flute while the Dutch reed quintet Calefax will present fairy tales set to music. The Chamber Ensemble of the Festival Maribor and soprano Nika Gorič will join together to provide an insight into how Mahler viewed the joys of the heavenly life through the eyes of a child. The Austrian bass-baritone Josef Wagner and pianist Christian Schmidt will lead us on a journey far and wide, even to the earliest compositional efforts of Richard Strauss. The festival will close with the SNG Maribor Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Austrian conductor Günter Neuhold and featuring the exceptionally young Slovenian pianist, thirteen-year-old Mak Muni Mihevc.
