SCENATET brings the highly acclaimed Me Quitte to Hong Kong.
Niels Rønsholdt’s piece Me Quitte was commissioned and premiered by SCENATET in 2013, and since then it has been performed in a number of countries in various versions for ensemble as well as for symphony orchestra. Now SCENATET brings the surreal song cycle to Hong Kong in a performance together with the composer himself and Anna Katrin Øssursdóttir Egilstrøð.
In Me Quitte Rønsholdt turns the classic love song by Jacques Brel, Ne Me Quitte Pas, inside out. Rønsholdt sings the words backwards and begs his lover to leave.
