One night only, at midnight in the heart of Warsaw: Le Mort de Socrate will be performed by Barbara Hannigan and Reinbert de Leeuw.
This unique musical experience will be staged by Krzysztof Warlikowski to commemorate the opening of the Nowy Theater in Warsaw. Hannigan and Warlikowski have collaborated on numerous productions together including Lulu, Don Giovanni and most recently La Voix humaine. Admission for Le Mort de Socrate is free and tickets can be obtained at the box office of the theatre.
Earlier this week, Hannigan and de Leeuw released their first album together: Socrate, commemorating Erik Satie’s 150th birthday. For this Satie celebration year, Barbara Hannigan and pianist Reinbert de Leeuw recorded a selection of Erik Satie’s works, Socrate being the central focus of the album.
