In March, ERSO, Olari Elts, and soprano Aile Asszonyi will meet on the stage of the Estonia Concert Hall to perform an operatic concert programme. The programme will feature excerpts from Richard Wagner’s last opera Twilight of the Gods part of the tetralogy The Ring of the Nibelung. The works of Richard Strauss and Paul Hindemith will also be played.

This year, soloist Aile Asszonyi made her historic debut at the Frankfurt Opera, taking the stage in the title role in Elektra by Richard Strauss. This is one of the most compelling roles ever performed by an Estonian singer in a top European opera house. Asszonyi’s dramatic soprano is particularly well-suited to major roles in the operas of Wagner and Strauss. This evening, however, we will be hearing a performance of Strauss’s symphonic poem Don Juan.
