The stage is set for a firework display of top arias for choirs and tenors from the world of opera. Adam Frandsen – the fast-rising young Danish tenor – is offering well-known arias composed for tenors from e.g. Turandot, and the beautiful voices of the accomplished Malmö Opera Choir will be performing pieces from e.g. Verdi's The Force of Destiny and The Troubadour, accompanied by the famous notes of Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld.
Before the interval, one of Sweden's greatest composers, Wilhelm Stenhammar, will be highlighted in the Nordic section. He was inspired by both Richard Wagner and Anton Bruckner, but over the years developed a more 'Nordic' tone inspired by colleagues such as Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius.
Music by Verdi, Puccini, Offenbac and Donizetti among others.
