A Finnish overture, Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor and Stravinsky's Firebird on new wings.

Works by Sibelius and Saariaho mark the beginning of the end of this year's festival, performed by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and led by Finnish conductor John Storgårds. Joachim Carr from Bergen is this year's soloist in Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor.

After the interval awaits a grand performance, in which the award-winning Danish Dance Theatre presents choreographer Tim Rushton's Firebird. The music is Stravinsky as we know it, but the staging is contemporary, with pulsating video projections and cutting-edge scenery.

Through music, movement and striking visuals, it explores a doomed and enchanted world of chaos and order, exploitation and domination, victory and loss. A stage filled with turmoil, crafted physicality and fierce beauty rounds off the 2017 Festival.

'Magical dance imagery', according to the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
