Brussels Philharmonic | O Superman x Ein Heldenleben

O Superman x Ein Heldenleben

Since 2021, Brussels Philharmonic has been collaborating on and off the stage with contemporary music ensemble Ictus. For Ein Heldenleben, Jean-Luc Plouvier from Ictus provides the dramaturgical context. Especially for this concert, which focuses on Richard Strauss and the theme of (anti)heroes, he created a unique cover of Laurie Anderson's worldwide hit, O Superman.

Disocver this special performance of O Superman (for Massenet) by Kelly Poukens (voice), María Gil Muñoz (voice) & Jean-Luc Plouvier (piano) on September 30 at 19:00, 19:15, 19:30 or 19:45 at Studio 2 (Flagey).

Strauss: Ein Heldenleben · 30.09.2023 · Flagey

Heroes take many forms – in real life as well as in art. Richard Strauss brought a succession of heroes to the fore in his symphonic poems, two of whom come to life in this programme – thanks to Strauss’ impressive orchestration – as if in a film.

programme notes

‘I am not a hero. I don’t have the strength for it. I’m not fit for the battle. I prefer to stay in the background, in a quiet place.’ - Richard Strauss
