Marking the final stage of a four year cycle based on the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire, The Song Company celebrates the heat and passion of Fire and the music which expresses it. In this first-time collaboration with The Song Company, Danish Guest Director and composer Bo Holten leads a fiery program of neck-breaking speeds, hair-raising leaps and awe-inspiring harmonies.
Bo Holten is one of Denmark’s most admired musicians. His Operation Orfeo is his country’s most performed opera. Holten’s impressive oeuvre includes concertos and vocal works, and music for Lars von Trier’s film The Element of Crime.
