Grec 2018: The monster in the labyrinth

Theatre
Jove Orquestra Nacional de Catalunya

Professional singers and musicians, but also amateurs of all ages, perform the story of Theseus and the Minotaur made into an opera. The project was commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra, the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Aix-en-Provence Festival, who asked composer Jonathan Dove for a contemporary creation that could be performed by a mixed cast, with professional singers along with fans, and with space for young performers from the different countries where they put it on. In Barcelona you'll see musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Catalonia and the Choirs of the Orfeó Català, accompanied by three soloists and singing fans who have been trained and prepped in advance. Young performers and a circus artist (Quim Girón, as Minotaur) are also part of the cast along with the professional musicians.
