TaO Special

(Oper mal anders)


Richard Vardigans in the Coselpalais Dresden

Live at the piano ....not a lecture, not a concert, not even any singing... and yet (almost) everything you always wanted to know about opera but never dared to ask!

Richard Vardigans - Conductor and Pianist - accompanies you on a journey to a world of love, jealousy, revenge and (if needs be) murder!

All operas and special thematic events can be offered in English - even if you do not plan a visit to the opera!
