Symphonie fantastique & Lélio

Wed 26/02/2020 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €

Introduction

Falling in love can cause sleeplessness and weight loss – or the Symphonie fantastique. Tormented by the waves of passion, the Artist comes to life as Lélio in a piece that Berlioz composed as a sequel to his Symphonie fantastique. At its core is an emotional monologue delivered in this concert by French actor André Wilms, who has starred in the films of Aki Kaurismäki. This is the first time that the two pieces, which the composer intended as a pair, will be performed together in Finland.
