Puccini: Madama Butterfly

When young Japanese girl Cio-Cio San marries American lieutenant B F Pinkerton, she is convinced that it is true love. Therefore she does not worry when he leaves Japan to return to America because, naturally, he will return to her.

But to Pinkerton, his Japanese marriage was merely a way to pass the time, and he realizes too late that playing with a young, impressionable heart can have dire consequences.

Lars Kaalund's romantic, critically acclaimed interpretation of Puccini's tragic drama is a tribute to Cio-Cio San, who insists on waiting for her beloved and continues to believe in her love, even when everything looks hopeless. The set designer, Christian Friedländer, and the artist and costume designer Pernille Egeskov have created an aesthetically beautiful and simple setting, mirroring the Western world's dream of the Far East with sweeping silk kimonos inspired by Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Thomas Adès: The Exterminating Angel

After a festive evening in the Opera, a group of jet setters gather for a later dinner party. But something is terribly wrong: A curse seems to have been cast on the party, making it impossible for anyone to leave the house. Soon, desperation sets in, and the dinner escalates into a nightmarish fight for survival.

The Exterminating Angel is inspired by Luis Buñuel's surrealistic cult film classic from 1962. An extra layer is added to Buñuel's universe with Thomas Adès' seductive musical universe, which abounds with sounds of musical masters of the past, from Wagner and Mussorgsky to Bartók, Nielsen, Ravel and Shostakovich and with a hint of Stravinsky's wild abandon. The piece's no fewer than twenty-two characters emphasize the immensity of its universe, set to the music of one of the most notable composers of our time.

The Exterminating Angel had its world premiere at the 2016 Salzburg Festival and is a coproduction between the Salzburg Festival, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Royal Danish Opera.

Rossini: The Barber of Seville

The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.

True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.

In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.

Gala Orchestra Concert

Santa Cecelia Orchestra

Our Teddy Bear Concerts are a huge success with every seat taken. Once again, this year we added more concerts to make sure all of the young people in our audience have a chance to see and hear our musicians and their instruments and have added the brass instruments. We have scheduled three Teddy Bear Concerts for your family to meet our orchestra family.

Bring your children and their favorite stuffed friends to these delightful concerts that demonstrate how sounds, melodies, rhythms, and instruments can bring music to life. Kids and stuffed animals alike will have an opportunity to discover the orchestra’s string , woodwinds, or brass. . . or all three!

We will provide complimentary Milk and Cookies Reception after the concert. And you are invited to bring a sack lunch for your own teddy bear picnic before or after the concert on our grounds.
