Trailer Devils and Angels with Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright and Amsterdam Sinfonietta once again joined forces in a 90-minute journey: “Devils and Angels” featuring pieces and songs inspired by Love and Hate. Besides Rufus’ songs such as Devils and Angels and Westside Waltz, it featured covers by Prince, Paul Simon and Woodkid, among others. Classical pieces intertwined with pop songs; Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde with Wainwright’s Early Morning Madness, or the seamless transition of an aria by Gluck in Devils and Angels.

This unique concert can be streamed on demand from 10 February 19:30. Buy your tickets now, you can pay what you like, between €7 and €79.
