Scriabin assigned colour shades to the notes of his last orchestral work. The intense experience of this piece is made complete with the use of a colour organ prescribed by the composer and light art.

 

Béla Bartók: Bluebeard’s Castle
Opera in one act, in Hungarian, with English surtitles

Libretto: Béla Balázs

Duke Bluebeard: András Palerdi
Judith: Andrea Rost

Contributing: Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra
Directed and Conducted by: Zsolt Hamar

Zoltán Kocsis (1952-2016) conductor and pianist’s contribution has made the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra one of the most significant interpreters of Bartók’s oeuvre. In this festival performance of Bluebeard’s Castle Zsolt Hamar, holder of the Liszt Award, heading the orchestra since 2017 undertakes the creative tasks of stage direction in addition to that of the conductor with the support of outstanding artists. He says: "I truly believe that opera is not a libretto with musical accompaniment but a theatre play of its own right written by the composer, in the language of music using means of expression inherent to music."
