Kirklees Concert Season 2019/20 Orchestra of Opera North: Bluebeard's Castle

About the event

An electrifying concert performance of Bartòk’s gothic chiller

Colossal orchestral scores and sensational vocals will make this an unforgettable concert performance.

Towering fanfares sandwich Janácek’s dazzling Sinfonietta. This lively orchestral piece sees rustic, lyrical melodies layered one upon the next with twists and turns that build suspense.

Bluebeard’s Castle is an intense psychological thriller set to music. A foreboding castle cloaked in darkness, full of forbidden rooms. Behind every door is a dreadful secret… but just how far will Judith go to uncover Bluebeard’s mysterious past? This gripping drama
hurtles towards a chilling finale, with an immense score that’s sure to have you on the edge of your seat.
