Middle East Peace Ensemble // Copenhagen Opera Festival 2022

Opera, folk, performance and Gaga-dance from the Middle East

The scene is set for a cosmopolitan festival when Middle East Peace Ensemble makes community come alive at the heart of Nørrebro.

The Middle Eastern Peace Ensemble is a group of musicians with Jewish, Christian and Muslim backgrounds, creating solidarity through the power of music.

You can also experience the Swedish mezzo-soprano Idil Alpsoy as a soloist. Alpsoy is an opera singer who trained at the Manhattan School of Music, and her roots are in Hungary and Turkey. Her warm and full voice spans the field between opera and folk-song with perfect ease.

Feel the music run all the way through to the tips of your toes! København Danser has invited the Belgian-Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and two dancers from the Eastman company to set the music in motion with a performance developed especially for the occasion.

During the concert, the audience will also be guided through a veritable dance lesson in Gaga, developed by choreographer Ohad Naharin. Gaga is a fluent and improvised movement language that sparks imagination, blood flow and human understanding.

The event is part of and co-presented with Copenhagen Opera Festival.
