The Blog at Carnegie Hall

Ligeti’s madcap, end-of-the-world opera Le Grand Macabre is one of the 20th century's most compelling works of musical theater. Its grotesque, fantastical flavor is distilled in a short spinoff, Mysteries of the Macabre, which combines the coloratura soprano's three arias in a bracing display of daredevil vocal feats.

Mysteries of the Macabre piece will be performed in Zankel Hall on December 19 by Ensemble ACJW and Barbara Hannigan, soprano, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
