Saturday Opera – Passion and Crime

Saturday Opera – Passion and Crime

This season we return to start our Saturday Opera at 3.30 PM every saturday.


At the end of the 1800s the forkus in operas changed dramatically. Gods, mythological beings and kings were no longer the preferred subject, but modern men and women with problems of a passionate or emotional character. The opera drew closer the the life of simple people, their problems, tears and joys.

Fantastic or real verismo characters can be united in one hallmark: They posess strong and often exaggerated passions that make them comitt crime, even against their closest family.

There is only one step from love to hate – this is the silent motto of the verismo-operas. In this concert the audience will hear works by Puccini, Cilea and Catalani amongst others.
