For this occasion marking the 35th anniversary with the Opera, Komlósi has compiled her own programme and the list of artists she wishes to have join her on stage. Instead of singing a series of arias and songs, she has elected to make each half of the evening an extended excerpt from an opera that has played a crucial part in her career.
Partnering with her in Verdi’s Aida will be András Palerdi, her regular Bluebeard. The condensed version of Carmen, on the other hand, will feature – apart from Géza Gábor, Orsolya Sáfár, Zsófia Kálnay, Máté Fülep and Zoltán Megyesi – Marco Berti, who has appeared in several DVD recordings with Komlósi, including Aida.
Featuring the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra, the artists of the Varidance Company: Albert Hernicz, Balázs Perger, Gergő Simon, Krisztián Széchenyi, Zsolt Végső (artistic director, choreographer: Bertalan Vári), and the artists of the FlamenCorazónArte Dance Theatre: Zsófia Pirók (flamenco dance), Andrea Lippai (flamenco dance) and Alex Torres (flamenco guitar).
This production directed by András Almási-Tóth and conducted by Kálmán Szennai promises to be an unparalleled one at the Erkel Theatre.
