Bartók paints vivid musical pictures of the castle’s sinister rooms. This hugely powerful opera - Bluebeard’s Castle - depicts the tragic Judith (performed by Tanja Ariane Baumgartner) obsessively opening a series of mysterious doors in her recently betrothed’s castle to discover the fate of his former wives. In a sumptuous score, while also conveying the psychological subtleties of his two protagonists. Bluebeard is performed by Robert Hayward.
