Bluebeard’s Castle on Wednesday

Michelle DeYoung sings the role of Judith

Wednesday at 8:00 PM

Bartok’s bone-chilling, expressionist one-act opera, Bluebeard’s Castle, features Michelle DeYoung and the great Bayreuth Wotan Sir John Tomlinson under the baton of Edo de Waart. The opera is based on a tale by the 17th century Frenchman, Charles Perrault, and sung in Hungarian.
