The Rake’s Progress
Equilibrium’s first project will be three semi-staged performances of Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress with Gothenburg Symphony in December 2018. After The Rake’s Progress in Gothenburg in 2018, further performances of the opera are scheduled for May 2019 in Europe and in June 2019 in the United States. Barbara Hannigan will be conducting.
Performances of Mozart’s Requiem with two major European orchestras are scheduled for March and April 2019.
Auditions and casting for our first season drew over 350 online applicants from 39 countries. Live auditions were held for selected applicants in Stockholm, Zurich, Paris and London between March and June 2017.
A new round of auditions will eventually take place for upcoming Equilibrium projects.
The Gothenburg Symphony, the National Orchestra of Sweden, was founded in 1905. The orchestra’s home is the Gothenburg Concert Hall, and the orchestra’s television channel GSOplay broadcasts concerts live and on demand in full HD.
Barbara Hannigan has performed many times with the Gothenburg Symphony, both as soprano soloist and conductor.
In the 2015-2016 season she was Artist-in-Residence with the orchestra.
