“Glück und andere Versprechen (Happiness and other Promises)” – the opera’s season motto is also the title of the Hanover State Orchestra of Lower Saxony’s New Year’s Concert. Conducted by general music director Stephan Zilias, the orchestra will be joined by singers from the opera company to welcome the New Year. In arias, ensembles and orchestra pieces, musical moments of happiness and buoyant prospects will ring in a hopefully peaceful year 2023.
