Coming up…

And in the coming week…  On Tuesday there is a treat for fans of contemporary music.  Krisztina Szabó will be performing the Berio Folksongs in the RBA at noon.  She will be accompanied by members of the Esprit Orchestra and the programme also includes Andrew Staniland’s Orion Constellation Theory and Alexina Louie’s From the Eastern Gate.

Thursday sees the opening of the COC season with Strauss’ Arabella in a production by Tim Albery starring Erin Wall, Jane Archibald and Tomasz Konieczny.  Check out this article by Lydia Perovic for a South Slav’s take on an opera with South Slav references including that hardy Strauss perennial; hunting bears in Croatia.  Arabella runs until the 28th at the Four Seasons Centre.

On Saturday, indigenous production company Red Sky Productions are collaborating with the TSO in a new piece by Eliot Britton; Adizokan.  It’s a fusion of dance, video electro-acoustics and music in both western symphonic and indigenous traditions.  7.30pm at Roy Thomson Hall.
