In our video: Kirill Petrenko on Puccini’s “Suor Angelica”

The countdown has started: on 1 and 2 February, Kirill Petrenko presents his first opera project, Giacomo Puccini’s one-act Suor Angelica, with the Karajan Academy and a cast of young female singers. In an interview for the Digital Concert Hall, he explains why he chose this rarely performed work, why the piece is ideal for young voices and musicians, and why working with young artists is so important to him.
