LGBTQ+ in operas

Opera singer Íris Björk Gunnarsdóttir and pianist Hjalti Þór Davíðsson will perform arias from operas with prominent LGBTQ+ characters and talk about Íris‘s current research on the subject. The music performed comes from many periods, from Händel to contemporary composers. During the performance Íris Björk will take on the roles of various genders, castrati singers, historical figures, pants/skirt roles as well as gay and trans roles. The recital will be repeated in October at the Opera Days festival in Reykjavík. 

Free admission, this event is in Icelandic
