Drottningholm 2012

Opera performances:
"This summer at Drottningholm we will be dipping into two of the richest myths of our western culture: the ancient Greek epic recounting the exploits of Jason and Medea, and the mediƦval legend of Roland. They are united by a fascination with the unfathomable experience of human love. Jason falls in love with Medea, but isn't she a sorceress? Orlando is in love with Angelica, but it's a love that sends him mad. We talk of the magic and madness of love even today, and, what's more, both stories deal with love across cultural and religious boundaries… So-called forbidden love. But isn't this a non sequitur?"Mark Tatlow, Artistic Director
