In this season FIGURA offers following concerts:




German Cabaret feat. Helene Gjerris
When Helene Gjerris of the FIGURA Ensemble is not shining in modern and classical opera roles, she sings German cabaret songs from the 1930es. Songs which cover the whole spectrum from the sharp and witty songs by Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht, to languishingly sentimental pop songs and movie songs.







Jazz feat. Tuva Semingsen
An evocative night concert in the company of old and new jazz standards. The world-renowned mezzo-soprano Tuva Semingsen opera soloist at the Royal Theatre, is adding, as Denmarks one and only mezzo, the title as a jazz diva to her repertoire and digs up, along with FIGURA and saxophonist Peter Fuglsang, form the Danish Radio Big Band, songs from the days when classic show songs had their heyday on Broadway and in Hollywood's nightclubs. It's all mixed with interpretations of newer songs with the standard potential.
