World premiere Klas Torstensson – L’autunno di Christina

Geplaatst op

Operadagen Rotterdam and de Doelen present the world premiere of ‘L’autunno di Christina’, commissioned by de Doelen…   

Sinfonietta Riga, together with violinist Joseph Puglia and soprano Charlotte Riedijk, performs the first three parts of the versatile Christina Cycle by Klas Torstensson. This consists of three works on texts by and about the Swedish queen Christina (1626-1689): a particularly intriguing, heroic woman who immersed herself in alchemy and astronomy, revolted against traditional femininity, did not want to marry and renounced herself the throne. She spent her last years in Rome as a patron of theater, sculpture and music.

composition: Klas Torstensson
