ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Starting in 2024, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) will take over the Artistic Direction of the renowned Musikwoche Hitzacker for five years. Titled, aus Leidenschaft (Out of Passion) the festival's 38th edition will reflect the MCO's own passion for music and their wish to engage in an active dialogue with audiences and the festival itself.
The fast-paced and multi-award-winning comedy duo Carrington-Brown and children's songwriter Suli Puschban combine rock with classical music and pop with opera. Cellist Rebecca (actually a former member of Mahler Chamber Orchestra) with her ancient cello 'Joe', the actor Colin, and the rock singer Suli leap over the edge of the stage and allow their young audience to sing along, join in, and overcome boundaries.
Lively melodies from opera arias and other catchy tunes from classics focus the attention of an enthralled young audience. Children meet the Queen of the Night, become acquainted with the magical powers of a cello bow, and are left with a clear message at the end of the musical adventure: "Life is good!”.
