2017 Live Lounge from the Easter Festival Baden-Baden (12 min.)

In the spring of 2017, like every year in Baden-Baden, horn player Sarah Willis welcomed colleagues from the orchestra and a soloist from the Easter Festival to the popular Live Lounge, where fans from all over the world can put questions to the musicians via the internet. Soprano Kristine Opolais, who sang the title role in Giacomo Puccini’s opera Tosca in the production of Philipp Himmelmann in 2017, talks to Willis, concertmaster Daishin Kashimoto, principal clarinet Wenzel Fuchs and violinist Philipp Bohnen about working with the Berliner Philharmoniker, why she became a singer, and her view of the heroine in Puccini’s famous opera. In addition, the orchestral musicians perform a chamber music serenade with motifs from Tosca for this wonderful singer.
