The terminally ill Mimì experiences the happiness of a great love in the midst of poverty and illness. The living lady Violetta, on the other hand, perishes from her great love and Pimpinella must find her way back to great love through charlatanry.

4 violinists of the DSO, led by concertmaster Wei Lu, present highlights of the Italian opera and film music repertoire in the Italian Courts.
They bring the subjects of great love close to the audience: passion, jealousy, greed, revenge and even death.

Accompanying them, actress Chris Pichler lends a narrative voice to the instrumental program by reciting key scenes from the texts on which the works are based.

(Language: German)

Arrangements from Verdi's La Traviata, Stravinsky's Pulcinella, Puccini's La Bohème and Nino Rota's The Godfather will be heard from violinist Nari Hong.

An evening of epic themes in an intimate setting.
