The Baltic Sea Festival celebrates 10 year 2012... and what a stellar cast Festival it will be...

The famous "Tsunami-Tristan" will at last come to Stockholm. The video installation by Bill Viola has been on everyone's lips since it started out several years ago... Classicalify saw it in Paris and was of course impressed by the singing... and if you like video installations you have to see it... Say no more! The singers will knock your heads off!

There will also be a Jubilee concert with Nina Stemme, Beethoven 9 (Herbert Blomstedt) and of course Valerij Gergiev will conduct, this year he brings the Marinskij Ballet to Stockholm.
