Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

Operatic concert game named ‘Game Of Thrones’ to debut in February 2015

The Game Of Thrones concert is one of which named One World company’s ‘Operasodes’ concerts, a term coined by artistic director and composer Sung Jin Hong to describe a concert based on a particular TV show.

Commenting on the choice of Game Of Thrones as a concert inspiration, Hong said: “The show has all the drama, intrigue, and passion that operas have been providing us for centuries: seduction, obsession, deception, political manoeuvring, romance, heartbreak, incest – to name a few.”

The programme for the concert is full of operatic greats and the occasional dip into GoT-style fantasy fiction:

Richard Wagner: excerpts from Der Ring des Nibelungen
Annie Lennox: “Into the West” from The Lord of the Rings
Sergei Prokofiev: “Battle of the Ice” and “Field of the Dead” from Alexander Nevsky
Igor Stravinsky: from The Firebird
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: from The Maid of Orleans
Richard Strauss: excerpts from Elektra
Donizetti: excerpts from Lucrezia Borgia
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: excerpts from Idomeneo and La Clemenza di Tito
George Frideric Handel: excerpts from Rinaldo
