Milos Milivojevic / Opera North – Swanhunter

swanhunter_opera_northAccordionist Milos Milivojevic will be performing alongside Opera North. Swanhunter is an inventive fusion of opera, puppetry and live action.

Swanhunter is an Opera North / The Wrong Crowd co-production | Composed by Jonathan Dove using a libretto written by Alasdair Middleton

Against his mother’s wishes, Lemminkäinen travels to the icy north in search of a bride. There, impossible tasks await him: he must hunt the Devil’s elk, ride the Devil’s horse, and shoot a swan. But unseen danger lies in wait for him on Death’s river…

Based on a tale from the Finnish folk epic The Kalevala, Swanhunter is a magical chamber opera written by the composer and librettist of Opera North’s hugely successful The Adventures of Pinocchio. Scored for six singers accompanied by six instrumentalists, Swanhunter is a celebration of the power of song, designed specifically for a family audience – for adults just as much as for children.
