Pindrop Events has announced that a group of opera singers will perform a reimagined version of 14 songs from the final Schubert’s Lieder cycle “Schwanengesang.”

The event will star sopranos Kim-Lillian Strebel, Rachel Fenlon, and Ana Schwedhelm, mezzo-soprano Rebecca Jo Loeb, baritone Jóhann Kristinsson, and tenor Peter Kirk.

“Change in the arts has been necessary for some time. The current uncertain future drives the need to re-imagine the arts in order to not only return after the crisis but to seek out new horizons and in doing so, becoming more resilient. Pindrop is looking to build new structures, rather than rebuild old ones, and this project is the first of a series of challenging concepts,” said the tenor and the Pindrop founder Andrew Dickinson in a press release.

The live events will take place at the Theater im Delphi in Berlin on Oct 9 – 11, 2020, at 8 p.m. CET. The performance will be streamed via United We Stream in October 2020. The stream will also provide a worldwide donation link for the Baytna Baytak social initiative, which is engaged in rebuilding Beirut after the deadly explosion in August 2020.
