Ulster Hall - Belfast

Borodin - Overture: Prince Igor
Tchaikovsky - Waltz: Eugene Onegin
Nielsen - Suite: Aladdin

A concert which gives musical life to three literary figures. Prince Igor hails from the Russian epic The Lay of Igor’s Campaign and Eugene Onegin is the foppish anti-hero of Puskin’s poem. Nielsen composed the music that forms the Aladdin suite to accompany a new production of Adam Oehlenschläger’s dramatic fairy tale Aladdin and the Magic Lamp. While the production of the show was something of a disaster, the music has outlived the play and become one of Nielsen’s most popular works.
