Maria Streijffert in Petite Messe Solennelle at the Malmö Opera

The Malmö Opera opens their Friday concert series with Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle.

Malmö Opera's Friday concert series of the season 2021/22 begins with an Italian gem: Gioacchino Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle. The Orchestra and choir of Malmö Opera will be led by Daniela Musca. Maria Streijffert, who has joined two productions at the Malmö Opera this season; A Midsummer Night's Dream and An evening with Thalia, sings the alto solo. Concert on Friday November 5 at Malmö Opera.

"Petite Messe Solennelle was originally written in a smaller setting; two pianos, pedal organ and 12 voices. Rossini banned the performance of a large orchestra during his lifetime. But still, he orchestrated the work himself so that it would be the way he wanted it. And it is this version that will be performed at this concert. We will hear is a captivating work, magnificently performed with orchestra, choir and soloists."
