Béla Bartók: BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE
Staged, visual-opera concert
On the 140th anniversary of the birth of Béla Bartók
Szentendrei Teátrum and Coopera production
In the two roles, Viktória Mester and Levente Molnár, an artist-couple living in Surány, who have performed in the world’s major opera theatres. Produced by Dr. Dániel Hunter | Artistic director: Bocskor Lóránt | Scenery, costumes, spectacle: Csaba Csíki
Director: Zalán Zakariás
Béla Bartók’s “Bluebeard’s Castle” opera will be staged with Coopera’s company, which created a unique inter-theatre collaboration model based in Szentendre.
The staged opera concert is intended to commemorate one of the greatest composers of our time, Béla Bartók, born 140 years ago this year. The new production attempts to illustrate, explore, and interpret the characteristics of the male and female souls and their complex relationships. The symbolism of male-female symbiosis is deepened by the musical accompaniment of soloists played by a male and a female artist on two instruments. The musical world is complemented and transformed into a powerful visual world based on the colors and signal systems developed by the author.
Duration: 60 minutes, one act
