Concord Orchestra Concert "A Gothic Tale"

Presented by Concord Orchestra at 51 Walden, Concord MA

Oct 18 - 19 2019
Concord Orchestra Concert "A Gothic Tale"

The orchestra’s 67th season opens with a concert performance of of Béla Bartók’s one-act opera, “Bluebeard’s Castle” and Haydn’s Symphony No. 82, “The Bear.”

"Bluebeard's Castle" is based on a haunting 17th century story, set in a gloomy medieval castle. Bluebeard’s new wife wants to learn more about her mysterious husband by exploring his forbidding castle.  Ignoring his protests, she opens its seven locked doors, revealing dark secrets he wants to hide. Bartók’s opera, composed when he was thirty, shows the influence of Debussy and Strauss.  The opera will be performed in English.

Two accomplished vocalists perform the roles of Duke Bluebeard
