Concert performance DIVA!

The fireworks of the most famous opera arias (Wagner, Bizet, Rossini etc.) and capricious opera diva!

Mezzo-soprano Annaliisa Pillak and pianist Siim Selis will perform an unconventional concert performance "Diva" which is written and staged by Paavo Piik. "Diva" introduces the peculiar mind set of prima donnas and the company of opera stages through the most famous opera arias by Wagner, Bizet, Rossini, etc. Performance "Diva" is about the ridiculous yet emotive duet-duel of capricious singer and her accompanist who is tired of her vagaries. This evening one can see everything that can happen when opera diva's sense of reality is blinded by the spark of fame.

The duration of the concert is 1 hour.

"I have to admit that i do not remember when was the last time i could laugh so sanatively with the whole audience while enjoying high standard singing which is accompanied by the sensitive pianist!... You have to see and hear this!"

("Legerity and contrasts" /Tiiu Levald/ 31.05.2012)

"... Piik and Pillak have managed to combine their talents in the best way and diva clichés have been transformed into absurd in such a brave manner that they are always one step ahead of audience's expectations. ...

...Everything that can happen with a diva, will happen there. But what happens on stage is bigger than life - The scale of emotions is often out of limits...

Viva la ridicule!"

("One foot in the metaphor, other in the woods"/Kairi Prints/Eesti Ekspress 3.06.2012)

Since the premier in 2012 in Estonia "Diva" has been performed also in Finland, Russia, Brazil. All the performances have been very popular, because it's not based on text but since the beginning the goal has been to perform music in a high quality. It is complemented with the story by Paavo Piik which is based on the main character Annaliisa Pillak's notes on the life of the opera singers.

Enjoy the style and elegance of former times and today's splendid musicians!
