21 June, Norwegian Opera & Ballet: A homage to sailors and the oceans
Ralph Vaughan Williams’s monumental piece, A Sea Symphony, is brought to life this evening – with the full Norwegian National Opera Orchestra, the Opera Chorus and soloists.
A Sea Symphony has four movements, and the lyrics are from the poetry collection Leaves of Grass, by the American poet Walt Whitman. The main theme is the ocean, which is clearly expressed in the music’s swaying and dramatic, but also lyrical expressions. Each of the four movements are an optimistic homage to the oceans and heroic sailors.
