Scriabin in the Himalayas on solstice 2015 IDY

In order to raise money for the restoration of the cultural heritage of Nepal, a unique event is organized in the Himalayas in response to the recent Gorkha earthquake.   
A concert with music of the Russian composer Alexander Scriabin (1871-1915) will be held at the outdoor terrace of the Thikse Monastery in central Ladakh, India on solstice, 21 June 2015, celebrating the Light.

Apart from musical compositions by Scriabin, the program will also contain Himalayan Cham dance, an interactive light show and an olfactory score of timed scent diffusions.

Russian Fairy Tale Operas

Holland has discovered Russian Fairy Tales. The Singer Museum planned to stage an exhibition about the subject in 2003. The Groninger Museum realised the plan in 2008. Today the Nederlandse Opera is staging one Russian Fairy Tale opera after the other. Russian tales are hot! 
One recent performance of the Nederlandse Opera was particularly remarkable. This time a Danish Tale 'The Nightingale' from Hans Christian Andersen figured on the 'menu', set on music by Strawinsky.
