Sondheim: Sweeney Todd

The story starts in foggy London, where the innocently convicted Sweeney Todd returns home after having escaped from a lifelong prison sentence in Australia. In search of revenge he teams up with Mrs Lovett, the city's worst pie maker, who lets him keep a barbershop above her meat pie establishment in Fleet Street. Whilst Todd gives his customers a very close shave, people start flocking to Mrs Lovett's shop for some exceedingly delicious meat pies...

The strong cast is led by Americans Michael Mayer and Lester Lynch, with the legendary British soprano Susan Bullock in the role of Mrs Lovett. The rising Bergen star, Caroline Wettergreen, sings Johanna. The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Edvard Grieg Choir are led by conductor Stephen Higgins.

A new production by Bergen National Opera

Staged concert in 2 acts
Duration: 2 hours 45 minutes, including a 30 minute break

Biber: Requiem in F minor

The Church's loss is the Concert Hall's gain. Liturgically incomplete, the Great Mass in C minor cannot beautify a church service: but there is nothing incomplete about Mozart's artistic rationale in the music we have for K427. The work is conceived on a grand scale: the various tutti sections are more monument than movement: to different texts the music for soloists would grace any operatic stage (indeed, we are treated to colortatura solos, duets, a trio and a quartet): the orchestration is vivid and expansive.  Jagged Baroque rhythms are complemented by dramatic louds and - particularly - softs.  Mozart's intense study of the music of Bach and his contemporaries can be seen at the conclusion of Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus.  These movements are no mere nods to the necessity of writing a contrapuntal movement, these are powerful essays in the art of fugue.

Heinrich Biber is known to string players as the composer of some of the finest - and most difficult - music ever written for violin. But this Bohemian-Austrian composer also wrote major works for singers and orchestra, and the Requiem in F minor is one of the best of these. Scored for 5 soloists, chorus, trombones, continuo and strings in 6 parts, this is one of the greatest settings of the Requiem text written in the 17th century.
