Laborintus II with Mike Patton

Full-length programme centered on Luciano Berio’s masterpiece Laborintus II with Nederlands Kamerkoor Ictus and Mike Patton at Holland Festival.

Mike Patton is not one to shy away from experiments. The frontman of Faith No More guest stars in a programme featuring Luciano Berio’s 1965 masterpiece Laborintus II, a modern concert chamber opera based on works by Dante, TS Eliot and Ezra Pound. Ictus, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and video-collective Visual Kitchen support Patton and his musical guests. Laborintus II mixes a whole range of musical styles, from dramatic opera to ‘60’s European jazz. After the break Patton will hold an improvisation session with a host of greats from the international jazz scene. The evening is rounded off with a steaming DJ-set inspired by Italian B-movies.
