This week KOTTOS is playing at the Royal Opera in Copenhagen in a contemporary opera about danish Second World War legend Kaj Munk, “Martyriet” by John Frandsen. First time ever, I dare to say, that an opera is premiered with an original score for recorder, bouzouki, accordion and cello. We had a wonderful premiere this Saturday and will be playing this week at the Royal Opera in Copenhagen.
