€14

La Captive is the haunting portrait of a single immigrant mother who fights for a decent life for her and her child. Faced with the barriers of bureaucracy, prejudices, and inner despair she searches the depths of her soul for the strength to continue. As much a musical journey as an emotional one, this program draws from a wide range of musical sources – from Schubert, Berlioz, Chausson, Saint-Saëns, to Piazzolla and contemporary Arab composers such as Jabri, Dada and Benabdeljalil.

Metamorphoses

March 2, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Concertgebouw Brugge, 't Zand 34
Brugge, 8000 Belgium

€26

Unexpected evolutions in three short concerts A metamorphosis can be huge and conspicuous, or barely discernible, so you’d better stay alert during these three short concerts.

J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist in charge of the Manhattan Project, code-named the very first atomic weapon detonation “Trinity”, after the poem by early 17th century poet and cleric John Donne. Coincidentally the U.S. Army was using the same frequency as the nearby Voice of America radio station. During the countdown for the detonation, the radio broadcast encroached on the countdown, and this with Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings. To commemorate this horrific event in world history, and draw attention to…
