On May 12, 2022, starting at 8 p.m., the Alte Oper Frankfurt will broadcast the concert of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra live from the Great Hall to the Opernplatz.
Concert for all: With a broadcast to the Opera Square, the Alte Oper Frankfurt is letting the public participate in its first-ever Orchestra Festival. When the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, performs in the Great Hall on Thursday, May 12, 2022, the concert will be offered live as a public viewing for all interested parties. The concert in the house and the broadcast on the big screen at Opernplatz will begin at 8:00 pm. The program includes Robert Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor and Richard Strauss' sonorous symphonic poem "Ein Heldenleben." The solo part in Schumann's only piano concerto will be performed by Italian pianist Beatrice Rana, who made her celebrated debut at the Alte Oper three years ago with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Public viewing on Opera Square is free and open to the public. Some seating and bar tables will be provided, but visitors are also welcome to bring their own seating and settle in the area around the Lucae Fountain (which will be turned off during the concert). The Opera Square is accessible throughout, but the official seats will be released only after 7:00 pm. It is not possible to reserve or take these seats in advance. Food and drinks may be brought along and consumed on site, the Kuffler company will also provide a small gastronomic offer. The transfer will take place in any weather.
