Bluebeard’s Castle

A gloomy castle wall, the notorious landlord Bluebeard alone with his new bride. But don't worry: this is not a matter of life and death - it's about love. At the beginning, according to the libretto, there is nothing more to be seen than the gloomy, cavernous interior of a castle wall; no furniture, no windows, only seven locked doors. Even without a stage set, the bleak desolation of the scenery cannot be ignored. Bartók's ambitious score inventively creates a tonal mirror image of the scenic multicoloredness to these images, and incidentally ensures that a concert performance leaves nothing to be desired in terms of plasticity. Throughout the colorful variety, a (blood-)red thread runs through the question of how unreservedly a love between two people can be and thereby abandon all secrets and niches of retreat.
