Even real musical heroes sometimes need to pluck up their courage to meet unexpected challenges. This is what HEROÏCA is about. Seven musicians, selected from participants of the Lucerne Festival Academy, which was founded by Pierre Boulez, join director Dan Tanson, choreographer Laura van Hal, and dramaturg Johannes Fuchs in a rousing musical spectacle full of surprises, wit, and powerful images. Music from five centuries includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Gabriel Fauré, Gustav Holst, Luciano Berio, and others.
