PRESENTED BY ACCENTUS MUSIC AND GOTHENBURG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

In the documentary project entitled “Barbara Hannigan – Taking Risks”, Accentus Music and the Gothenburg Symphony accompany Barbara Hannigan preparing her first opera production as a conductor and recruiting the singer cast through a very personal selection process. The film follows all stages of the production, starting with the entire casting process and the very first auditions and culminating in the premiere of the semi-staged production of Stravinsky's “The Rake’s Progress” in Gothenburg in December 2018.

Barbara Hannigan will be present for this special presentation hosted by Accentus Music and the Gothenburg Symphony.
