An intoxicating a cappella tour de force, sung in Serbian with English surtitles. The night before a wedding, girlfriends prepare the bride-to-be for her impending marriage. The text is taken from original Serbian poetry. The scenes unfold, not in a linear narrative, but in a playful interconnection animated through drama, distilling magic and fantasy from ordinary moments.

Programme

  • Ana Sokolović, Svadba — Wedding (2010) (Ana Sokolović, libretto)

    opera: six a capella women’s voice

    Commission: The Queen of Puddings Music Theatre

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
