SOB symphony concerts

SOB symphony concerts

SOB symphony concerts are organized by the orchestra itself. Their programmes are decided by the principal conductor and the artistic director. Internationally renowned artistes perform as guest soloists, and the orchestra plays under the direction of its principal conductor or inspiring guest conductors. Until the re-opening of the Stadtcasino in 2020/21, the SOB symphony concerts are held in the Basler Münster, Theater Basel und Musical Theater Basel.

After the concertante 3rd act from Wagner's Parsifal in the Münster and Goetheanum, Sir Mark Elder will devote himself this time to the 3rd act from Siegfried in his Basel comeback. It consists of a series of three musical duels not only of great voices but also of great ideas. «Do you know what Wotan wants,» the God, disguised as a wanderer, asks the omniscient primeval mother Erda, who actually doesn't want to know anything more about it. But Wotan's will also has limits: carelessly, wild Siegfried smashes the highly symbolic spear in order to fight his way to Brünnhilde. In view of the fact that she is «not a man», Siegfried no longer knows what he wants either. This state of affairs does not last long: Joyfully and in highest tones, the two finally devote themselves to «shining love», which is not far from «laughing death.»
