Anne Sofie von Otter sings Saariaho CANCELLED

Kaija Saariaho’s La Passion de Simone takes its departure point from a text by the French, Jewish philosopher and mystic Simone Weil. Weil fled to England where she died while on a hunger strike in 1943, refusing food as long as her compatriots in France went hungry. Saariaho’s dramatic work is a full scale oratorio. The ensemble will be joined by the Netherlands Chamber Choir and star soprano Anna Sofie von Otter for this performance.
