VIDEO: Sneak Peek at LA Opera's Reykjavík Festival Highlighting Iceland at Walt Disney Concert Hall
In Reykjavík's close-knit artistic community, the contemporary music scene is indistinguishable from the rock, pop, and electronic music scenes. A hallmark of our season is the Reykjavík Festival, curated by Esa-Pekka Salonen and Daníel Bjarnason, which will highlight the creativity thriving in Iceland's capital. Passing seamlessly across a wide spectrum of music, the festival encompasses Green Umbrella, World Music, Toyota Symphonies for Youth programs, orchestral concerts with Salonen, popular music and interdisciplinary partnerships, visual and installation art, lectures and film.
Check out a sneak peek below!
- A new installation by Icelandic artist Shoplifter will be viewable in BP Hall throughout the Reykjavik Festival.
- Xárene Eskandar's film Driving at the speed of the Nordic sun will be screened continuously in Walt Disney Concert Hall's Keck Auditorium.
