They have waited long enough

20:00, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Mendelssohn-Saal, Augustplatz 8.
Composers Annelies Van Parys, Aftab Darvishi and Calliope Tsoupaki create new, contemporary sounds for 3 women who have had to wait in the wings of the great Greek myths far too long. Gaea Schoeters found the words that do these women justice. Soprano Katharine Dain sings them to life, 3 soloists on clarinet, duduk and qanun join the Ragazze Quartet. British stand-up classicist  Natalie Haynes provides an introduction.
