PhiloSonia’s “Liaisons III: Britten & Shostakovich” explores the friendship of two composers who recognized each other as kindred spirits, bonded by their similar artistic outlooks.Strongly affected by the turbulent events of the 20th century, each of their musical voices reflected their humanistic ideals and personal
musical voice.

About PhiloSonia’s 2017-18 Season Liaisons:
PhiloSonia’s Second Season Liaisons explores composers’ friendships and the works they inspired. Over four concerts witness composers as loyal life-long friends united in upholding absolute music, compatriots dedicated to preserve their country’s musical heritage, kindred spirits from two sides of the Iron Curtain, and two brothers who are some of today’s most buzz-worthy artists.

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.
