Bond in the Opera
James Bond arrives in Bratislava! Not the real one, but film music and songs written directly for James Bond films.
Fifteen legendary songs by great artists such as Louis Armstrong, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra, Adele, Sam Smith or Shirley Bassey will be heard at the Bond in the Opera.
Writing’s On The Wall and Skyfall won the American Academy Award, the Oscar. The touching song We Have All the Time in the World is the last one Louis Armstrong recorded before his death and John Barry himself considered the song the best he ever wrote. Interestingly, the famous Golden Eye song by Tina Turner was written by Bono and The Edge from U2. The big hit Thunderball is sung by Tom Jones to this day in the original key, an incredible 54 years after it was written.
All the songs mentioned, as well as other popular “Bond” melodies, can be heard at the concert on 30 and 31 August 2019 in the new SND building as studied by Adrian Harvan. The cast includes Celeste Buckingham, Martin Madej, SND Opera Orchestra and guest artists under the baton of Martin Leginus.
