ULTIMA Oslo Contemporary Music Festival
September 13 & 14, 2012

September 13: Diamanda Galás with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra
September 14: Schrei 27 film screening and Q&A with Anne Hilde Nest

From the program (translated from Norwegian by Allan Nilsson):

“With her characteristic music full of blood, death, beauty, pain and torture, the legendary Diamanda Galás has been shocking, amazing, and inspiring audiences for more than 30 years. An unforgettable evening is guaranteed when one of music’s most uncompromising figures performs for the first time with a symphony orchestra – namely our very own Norwegian Radio Orchestra (KORK). Ultima is proud to invite you to an evening of mystery and beauty, surrounded by the works of Edvard Munch in the University of Oslo’s Great Hall.

The next day a film screening of her latest film, Schrei 27, will take place at the Cinematheque. After the film there will be an exclusive meeting with Diamanda Galas on stage in conversation with the New Music Director Anne Hilde Neset.”
