About the Event

Discover two new short operas based on the plays from Japanese No theater and music by Kaija Saariaho, both directed by renowned theater director Peter Sellars starring Philippe Jaroussky and Davone Tines.

Heavenly sounds and voices coalesce on stage during the two performances of Only the Sound Remains, accompanied by the timbre of the lute, the movements of dance and the intangible noise of the wind.

In English with French and English surtitles

Artists

  • Martínez, Ernest (Conductor)
  • Jaroussky, Philippe (Countertenor)
    Unsurprisingly, it is in the music of the Baroque era – the heyday of the castrato – that French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky has captured the attention of music-lovers lovers around the world. The ethereal, but sensuous beauty of his voice, his virtuosity and his sense of style have brought him critical praise, a number of major awards – including, in 2008, Germany’s prestigious Echo-Klassik prize for Male Singer of the Year, honouring his Virgin Classics album, Carestini: The Story of a Castrato.
