  • Bradamante: guerriera innamorata – Female warrior in love

    Taideyliopiston Sibelius-Akatemian oopperaopiskelijat, orkesteri ja kuoro esittävät huhtikuussa oman tulkintansa G.F. Händelin oopperasta Alcina. Jokainen opiskelija on perehtynyt oman roolihahmojensa taustoihin ja esittee ne Liisamaija Hautsalon ohjauksessa laadituissa blogikirjoituksissa. Kehittelimme myös kaikille roolihahmoille oman mottolauseen. Isabella Shaw kirjoittaa omasta roolihahmostaan, Bradamantesta.

  • Not a random number, but a person and a singer

  • Time for opera!
