Love in all its forms: Sappho’s erotic tension in Marie Samuelsson’s new work Aphrodite with Katija Dragojevic as the soloist and the interplay of strong emotions in Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev. All under the direction of conductor Mei-Ann Chen.

This is where ancient Greece and 21st century Sweden, 16th century Verona and the Soviet Union of the 1930s meet in a strong and intense embrace. It opens with an intimate Intermezzo of Brahms transformed for orchestra, with the new title Black Swan.
