Mozart. Life, Love & Lust 
														(Copyright © Mirjam Devriendt)
Mozart. Life, Love & Lust

Amorous arias and duets sung by Mari Eriksmoen and Johannes Weisser, accompanied by the Baroque ensemble B'Rock under its renowned conductor René Jacobs.

Norwegian opera singers Mari Eriksmoen and Johannes Weisser take love's challenge in two of Mozart's best-loved operas: The Marriage of Figaro and The Magic Flute. Indulge yourself in duets of desire and passion served by famous operatic couples: Papageno and Papagena, and Count Almaviva and Susanna.

In Grieghallen the soloists are accompanied by the elite Belgian ensemble B'Rock Orchestra conducted by Mozart expert René Jacobs, who has more than 250 recordings under his belt. B'Rock, who believe that Baroque music should be played in the same way as rock music, are known for presenting their impulses and ideas with feeling and humour.

The programme also includes excerpts from Mozart's last symphonies, which examine and embellish the same musical themes as the operas. Experience Mozart – lyrical, dramatic, genius – all in the mood for love.
