VIDEO-INSTALATION for The Two Fiddlers Opera - Berliner Philharmoniker

Children’s opera with Simon Rattle and the Vocal Heroes

When goblins grant a wish, things can only end badly – as the fiddler Gavin, the hero of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s children’s opera based on an ancient legend The Two Fiddlers, finds out to his cost. In addition to musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle, the performers are young instrumentalists and the Vocal Heroes project choir. The concert will be broadcast free of charge in the Digital Concert Hall.
