19 & 20 The Lover by Harold Pinter / On Stage

wed & thu 20:30 (75’) 

 

The Lover by Harold Pinter is one of the best-known plays written by Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter.   

​A seemingly happily married couple, Richard and Sarah, live in a house in the countryside. The husband leaves home early for work, whereas the wife spends every afternoon with her lover.  

​ 

Employing a simple, everyday yet sharp language, Pinter places his characters in a psychological and mental game where roles are alternating, where the line between the real and the imaginary is blurry, where marriage and social conventions are being negated, and the protagonists lay themselves bare in front of the audience.

21 Premiere Cyprus Symphony Orchestra

To welcome the New Year 2022, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra is delighted to be joined by three special French artists: maestro Patrick Gallois, the brilliant harpist Anais Gaudemard and flutist Virginie Bove, who is also our orchestra’s sub-principal flute. The two soloists unite their talents in Mozart’s captivating Concerto for flute, harp and orchestra. 

Considered one of the best harpists of the new generation, Anais Gaudemard will also interpret Claude Debussy’s Danse sacrée et Danse profane for harp and strings, distinguished by their refined rigour and musical 'archaism'. 

Kurt Weill’s avant-garde musical ideas shook Europe in the 1920s.

 

The programme will close with the Cyprus Premiere of one of his most celebrated works, his Symphony no. 2 (Fantaisie symphonique).
