Discover the unforgettable sound world of Ana Sokolovic’s Svadba/Wedding.
Svadba is a stunning and intoxicating showcase for six female voices. This a cappella opera takes place the night before a wedding, as girlfriends prepare the bride-to-be for her impending marriage.
New York’s Opera News says Svadba is “dazzlingly inventive, recalling in its vitality and tangy harmonies the kind of folk music popularized by Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares.”
The Toronto Star calls Sokolovic’s intoxicating mix of Serbian folk song melodies, contemporary music sounds, and incessant rhythmic pulse “brimming with imagination.”
Belgrade-born, Montreal-based Ana Sokolovic is hailed internationally as one of Canada’s most important composers. Hot on the heels of this Queen of Puddings Music Theatre production winning Toronto’s Dora Award for Outstanding New Musical/Opera, Svadba is touring across Europe and Canada, culminating in this two-night only concert presentation in Vancouver.
Produced in this concert version by Queen of Puddings Music Theatre, the concert features six of Canada’s finest vocalists: Laura Albino, Carla Huhtanen, Andrea Ludwig, Shannon Mercer, Elizabeth Turnbull, and Jacqueline Woodley. Dáirine Ní Mheadhra, conductor. John Hess, percussion.
