Mythical: Horse & Symphony at the CHIO Aachen 2018
It is going to be about fairytales, myths, legends and heroes. The “Horse & Symphony” concert at the CHIO Aachen 2018 promises to be an exceptional experience.
This spectacular evening, which forms the prelude of every CHIO Aachen, lives from the interplay between the Aachen Symphony Orchestra and a unique horse show. “Together with the Symphony Orchestra we have come up with the motto “Mythical” for 2018,” explained CHIO Aachen Show Director, Frank Kemperman. Also because it offers plenty for the eye, of course, “the concert will be a fantastic event musically, sport-wise and visually,” stated Kemperman. The Deutsche Bank Stadium is going to be transformed into an enchanted forest, mythical landscapes will be created and legendary characters will enchant the audience.
On top of that successful equestrian athletes and internationally famous equestrian artists will be travelling to Aachen, their show will be accompanied by the fabulous music of the Aachen Symphony Orchestra, which will once again be directed by the provisional General Music Director, Justus Thorau, who already conducted the concert at the CHIO Aachen 2016 and impressed the crowd. Musically, he can fall back on many themes, of course thinking about fairytales, myths and legends “Hansel and Gretel“ immediately springs to mind, but also “Peter and the Wolf“, Siegfried the Dragon Slayer from Wagner’s Ring and the Nutcracker,” commented Thorau.
The concert is once again being staged on two evenings: On Friday, 13.7.2018 and on Saturday, 14.7.2018. Both concerts start at 8.30 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.chioaachen.de, from the hotline on +49-(0)241-917-1111 and at the CHIO offices at the showgrounds.
