Bastard | Nordic Stage Event

"Bastard - A Family Chronicle" is a story that deals with a dysfunctional family. The play is written by Hollywood scriptwriter Richard La Gravenese; recognized for movie scripts such as "Bridges of Madison County" and "The Fisher King".

The music is created by Cæcilie Norby and Lars Danielsson, for whom, composing a stage production score is a first. It's also a testimony to Norby & Danielsson's incredible talent to embrace new genre challenges and masterfully so.
The grand result is both classical and improvisational music with a bombastic and melancholic style - recorded by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. This collaboration uniquely brings together Nordic theatre with the utmost talents within Danish jazz.


Cæcilie Norby og Lars Danielsson har, for første gang, komponeret og indspillet musik til teater i den nordiske co-produktion "Bastard - En familiesaga". Det er uden fortilfælde i dansk scenekunst og musikdramatik, at et samarbejde mellem noget af det bedste indenfor nordisk teater kombineres med det ypperste indenfor jazzmusikken herhjemme.

Musikken til "Bastard" viser Cæcilie og Lars' store talent for at bevæge sig ud i nye genre og har her skabt musik der er en blanding af nyskrevet klassisk og improviseret musik. Stilen er bombastisk og melankolsk - og indspillet af DR UnderholdningsOrkester.


The Play was performed in 2012, in:

Reykjavik: 1/6 - 2/6

Malmo: 28/7 - 19/8

Copenhagen: 7/9 - 23/9

Washington DC.: 2013
