Exactly one hundred years ago today, Béla Bartók's 'Bluebeard's Castle' premiered at the Royal Hungarian Opera House. The same year, the composer started working on 'The Miraculous Mandarin'. What better way to celebrate this double centenary than with a new production of both works? 'Bluebeard's Castle & The Miraculous Mandarin' opens on June 8th.

"This Bartók diptych clearly deals with the difficulty of communicating, it’s about talking at cross-purposes, not being able to establish real human contact, but there is also the archetype of the undemonstrative man who bottles up his emotions. These are timeless human themes, yet digital contact has not made them any easier." Stage director @christophecoppens on 'Bluebeard's Castle & The Miraculous Mandarin'.
