Tous à l’opéra

SAISON 2021/2022 ▸ Philharmonie ▸ www.philharmonie.lu

The Philharmonie’s new season heralds a return to normality that will delight classical music lovers while also promising an exciting new programme. With Gustavo Gimeno still at the helm, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra will also collaborate with world-renowned conductors such as Domingo Hindoyan, Emilia Hoving and Jukka-Pekka Saraste. American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, guest of honour, brings us through her secret garden of musical delights with three spectacular shows taking place in October, when she will perform tracks from her album Songplay accompanied by her backing group, as well as in November and March for recitals that showcase her mastery of classical repertoire ranging from Handel to Mahler. Great opera arias also feature in the Philharmonie’s line-up with Georges Bizet’s Carmen directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov and Claudio Monteverdi’s The Return of Ulysses to his Homeland featuring creative input from South African artist William Kentridge. In an even more surprising turn of events, the American film director James Gray is tackling Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in an eagerly awaited spectacle while a series of ciné-concerts will include classics such as A Dog’s Life or the more recent Joker with the score performed live.
