Vampires take centre-stage at Royal Swedish Opera

Ola Eliasson (Dracula) and Elisabeth Meyer (Minna) © Carl Thorborg
A frightyfully enjoyable world premiere of Victoria Borisova-Ollas first opera, turned into a giant Halloween party, where the Kungliga Operan is invaded by an audience of vampires, emaciated Victorian ladies and sinister characters.

RSNO: Borisova-Ollas, Schumann & Dvořák

Barry Douglas  ©  Mark Harrison
RSNO cellist Peter Hunt's pre-concert talk began with a reading from Salman Rushhdie's novel, The Ground Beneath Her Feet. This reworking of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, was the inspiration for Open Ground by Russian-born (now Sweden-based) composer Victoria Borisova-Ollas. The novel's principal character, Vina Aspara, is caught up in an earthquake in Mexico.
